Colossians 1:9-14, Luke 5:1-11
“The deeper water”
Today, Jesus invites us to leave the safety of our shore and enter into deeper waters with Him. This is not easy for many of us because we cherish safety and security. We would rather be in the safety of the shore where we can be in control of our life than out in deep waters. Yet, it is precisely by being in deep water that we experience Jesus as He truly is. There, we learn to trust Him. There, we learn to walk by faith, not by sight.
Let us choose deep waters today.
Question for reflection:
1) What prevents me from leaving the safety of my shore and entering into deep waters with Jesus?
