The Freedom Option We Should Never Refuse
"You scare me, Leanna," one of my coworkers told me. I had just returned from rambling through the Old City of Jerusalem alone. I'd visited with local people along the way. My interactions had ended with an impromptu picnic shared with a Palestinian Muslim ...

A crowd of people gathered around Jesus as He taught. As they moved in to hear better, they pressed Him ever closer to the shoreline, to the edge of the surf. Some fishermen were there, cleaning their nets, so one of them (Simon) moved his boat back into the water to let Jesus teach the crowds from the deck.

The fishermen stayed on the shore while He taught. There's no doubt they heard what He said, but His words didn't seize them with amazement.

After the sermon, though, Jesus did something that rocked their world.

"Go to the deep water and put out your nets..."
Simon disagreed. "We fished all night and caught nothing. That's a waste of effort, but, if you insist..."

In the deep water, they threw out the nets and caught more fish than they thought possible.

It was the fish that moved them. Not words. Not even the words of Jesus.

For amazement had seized him and all his companions because of the catch of fish which they had taken; (Luke 5:9 NASB)

When words and the miraculous merged, they understood. The Word became flesh once more, and they beheld the Father through the Son in an utterly new way.

The net full of fish changed their lives forever.

Some hearts are moved by a powerful sermon. Some hearts are moved by a friend gently sharing truth over the years.

Some hearts, however, need to see tangible evidence of Christ, whether it's a wet, stinky net full of fish or the powerful evidence of a changed life.

What evidence of the reality of Christ do people see in us?

Today, let's pray that the miraculous work of God in our lives would be so evident that it will move those around us to utter, life-altering amazement at the power and sovereignty of God.
