Taking Christ to people is an act of love, because loving people requires a lot of us, loving even those I don't know. I glimpse one day is with you and everyone in eternal happiness, because here everything is fleeting, we need to live without hurting the other. Drink from these words and receive the grace of God.
Jesus leaves the synagogues and goes to the fishermen's environment, on the shores of Lake Gennesaret, proclaiming the Word of God to the crowd eager to hear his message. The crowd knows that Jesus has words of hope for the desolate people. Then, boarding Peter's boat, he continues teaching and asks Peter to cast the nets into deeper waters. Despite a fruitless night, Peter obeys, and the result is abundant. Obedience to the Word of God brings about positive results, it is transforming. It is trust in the power of the Gospel that produces unexpected results. After successful fishing, the Master calls some fishermen to follow him and share the mission. From fishers of fish, it turns them into fishermen of people, people willing to commit to your project. The Christian community is invited to cast the nets into deeper waters, that is, to go beyond the sameness, to face challenges without fear. The Master invites you not to be discouraged in life in the face of failures and failures, but to always try without ever giving up. If it doesn't work one way, try another. There will always be a solution when there is trust in God's Word and when perseverance drives forward.
At that time, 1 Jesus was on the shore of Lake Gennesaret, and the crowd was crowding around him to hear the Word of God. 2Jesus saw two boats standing on the shore of the lake. The fishermen had landed and were washing their nets. 3 Climbing into one of the boats, which belonged to Simon, he asked him to move a little farther from the shore. Then he sat down and, from the boat, taught the crowds. 4When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, "Go into deeper waters and cast your nets for fishing." 5Simon replied, “Master, we worked all night and caught nothing. But at your word, I will cast the nets.” 6 So they did, and caught so many fish that the nets broke. 7Then they signaled their companions in the other boat to come and help them. They came, and filled both boats to the point of almost sinking. 8 When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at Jesus' feet, saying, "Lord, depart from me, for I am a sinner!" 9Simon and all his companions were astonished because of the catch they had just taken. 10James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon, were also amazed. But Jesus said to Simon, “Do not be afraid! From now on you will be a fisher of men.” 11Then they took the boats to the shore, left everything and followed Jesus. Glory to you, Lord.
