Scriptures: Matthew 4:18-25
On a certain day Jesus was on a mission: the mission was to find recruits. He was searching for individuals that would join Him in His quest to reach and save the world. Near the Sea of Galilee He found four men. These men were doing things of this life which mirrored the actions it would take to reach and heal this world.
He found the first two men casting a net into the sea. Peter and Andrew, who were fishermen, were expecting a catch. Jesus also came across two other men who were mending their nets: James and John were two fishermen preparing for a catch. Its time to "mend our nets," making sure everything is secure so we are ready to reach the world. We also must be ready to "cast our nets," be ready to go out and reach the world!
What is God up to in this hour? Jesus is strengthening the connection points of the church. Jesus is strengthening key relationships in the body of Christ. He is directing His church to align under proper authority. God is connecting the covenant keepers.
The Lord is preparing fishers of men to cast the net for the next great catch. The disciples left their boat and it is time to be productive spiritually. The disciples left their father: it is time for our higher calling. The disciples followed Jesus: it is time for deeper teaching, intense preaching and immense healings. Colossal spiritual, natural, relational and financial healings.
