Simon Peter had fished all night with nothing to show for it, but when Jesus told him to do it all over again, he obeyed โ€” and so much fish was caught that their nets began to break.

Simon Peter’s immediate response was to fall at Jesus’ knees, recognising the greatness of the One who had performed the miracle and, in contrast, his own unworthiness.

Jesus then commissioned Simon Peter, who upon reaching the shore, left everything โ€” including the rewards he had been working for โ€” to follow Jesus.ย 

Christ is the real reward, and He looks for simple obedience in those who would follow Him. Be encouraged that Jesus can take the life you have, whatever it has looked like, and weave it into His calling for you.ย
