The secret to Simon Peter’s profound influence and impact on human history is captured in this simple phrase: “Yet if You say so, I will let down the nets.” –Simon Peter responding to Jesus Christ (Luke 5:5)
Being a professional fisherman, Peter had far more experience about fishing than Jesus. To compound his superiority, he had the home court advantage. Peter may have not known much about the fishing over in Nazareth, but he knew the Sea of Galilee like the back of his hand.
Nevertheless, going against his personal experience and professional expertise, Peter chose to do what Jesus asked.
And it set him on a trajectory that changed the world.
The ONE THING for today: Whether it is being told to wear face masks or flossing our teeth, there is something about human nature that resists being told what to do. However, if you could muster the humility and courage to acknowledge the Lordship of Jesus Christ over your life, it would change everything and lead to true success.
