Jesus provides the fish, but we are to bring them to the shore.
He said to them, “Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some.” So they cast it, and now they were not able to haul it in, because of the quantity of fish. John 21:6
Jesus gives us everything we need to be fishers of men. The fish are out there, so he provides us with the knowledge we need to find them, the tools to catch them, and the strength to bring them to the shore.
Last night we went with some friends to the Straz Performing Arts Center to see a show. It was fantastic; I loved all the dazzling costumes and the music. While we waited in line to get our car, we noticed some people getting ready for a drag show. It was hard not to look at the men prancing around in women’s attire and their exaggerated hair and makeup. To say that this world has gone mad is an understatement. What was once hidden in darkness is now brought into the light for all to see. What has happened to these people to make them like this? Yes, I get it. It’s an art form, but it was almost obscene. It’s so uncomfortable to watch that I would prefer they stay hidden from my sight, but now it’s easy to see the lost souls that need Jesus, and it’s heartbreaking.
Has the enemy tortured their minds so much that they are a lost cause? Not a chance! It may be a bit harder for us to want to bring them to Christ, but nothing is impossible for God. As Jesus said, “Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some.”
