Sharing Sunday: ushering in abundance

Through John 21, our Pastor gave us a glimpse of the bounty available to believers.

The plenty that fills our nets when Christ arrives.

“Men,” Jesus called to them, “you don’t have any fish, do you?”

“No,” they answered.

“Cast the net on the right side of the boat,” He told them, “and you’ll find some.”

So they did, and they were unable to haul it in because of the large number of fish.

Therefore the disciple, the one Jesus loved, said to Peter, “It is the Lord!”  (John 21:5-7)

Jesus asks us the same.

Do you have what you’re fishing for?

What you’re hoping for?

That for which you’re striving?

You don’t have it, do you?

Cast your net.

BK elaborated on the crisis of belief,

This requires taking a step of faith even when I don’t know where my foot will land.

Going from nothing to abundance depends on my willingness to obey.

Obedience leads to blessing.

The Lord says to sell a home without providing a mapped-out plan.

An opportunity to take a step of faith.

Following Him into an RV.

With the appearance of a reduced habitat,

arrives an enlarged territory of joy.

A smaller abode,

yet an expanse of peace.

A net too full to haul in.

Living for Him because of His love for us.

The ushering in of abundance.

    This is so timely Cristal! Everywhere I’m turning, it seems God is saying to me Obedience first then blessing. Sometimes I search and strive and forget the simplest things. That small voice whispers in my ear – just be obedient and I will bring it to pass. Beyond what I can even imagine!

  2. Larry Who says:

    Peter, Andrew, James, and John showed great faith in walking away from their fishing business and following Jesus. But I wonder how their wives and families handled their decisions. They had to have some struggles with the four disciples’ decisions. Just a thought here, nothing more.

    • Cristal says:

      We think too much alike, Larry. I have wondered the same. I guess it’s easier being the wife in a relationship because we don’t have to make the hard decisions. Yet, we do have the hard part of trusting the One who calls our husbands.
