“Quit While You’re Ahead?”
Luke 5: 9, 11: “For amazement had seized him and all his companions because of the catch of fish which they had taken … And when they had brought their boats to land, they left everything and followed Him.” As if to reinforce the point from yesterday, Peter, James, and John do the same thing today. Having achieved unparalleled success in catching fish, they immediately leave their boats and embark on a career in catching men. But the key to this is “following Him” (vv. 5, 11). Peter and the rest followed Christ’s guidance in the catch of fish, and as they followed Him on the road to apostleship, they caught the soul of many a man!
