“Go where it is deeper, and let down your nets to catch some fish”
This was the disciples’ second call. Although they have witnessed Jesus at the first time heal the sick, drive out demons, they still went back to fishing. Jesus then respected their work and understood their needs. Seeing their difficulty, he showed them the way the second time! Jesus met them where they were, in their current reality.
Realising how much Jesus is interested in our needs and salvation, the disciples left their nets and followed Jesus. “The harvest is plenty but the workers are few” (Matthew 9:37). The same thing is true today, He invites each one of us again and again - “ push it out into the water” further and deeper, let us catch more fish!
