In Luke Chapter 5, Jesus is preaching to a great crowd on the shore of the Sea of Galilee. He sees two empty boats left there by the fishermen, and He gets into the one belonging to Simon. At the conclusion of his sermon, he says to Simon, "Put out into deep water and let down the nets for a catch" (v4). Simon answered, "Master, we've worked hard all night and haven't caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets" (v5). They caught so many fish that their nets began to break, and they had to signal for a second boat. Simon Peter, James and John, the sons of Zebedee, his partners "...were astonished at the catch of fish they had taken..." (v9). Jesus replied to Simon, "...Don't be afraid! From now on you will catch men" (v10). So, they pulled their boats up on shore, left everything and followed him" ( v11).
The Net Christian E-Newsletter
The Net Christian E-Newsletter is our one-page weekly e-newsletter. By faith, we are letting down our "nets," casting them on the deep waters of the internet, by sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the world from an African American perspective. We pray that Jesus Christ is gloried, and you are edified, strengthen and encouraged by the sermon excerpts, devotionals, testimonies, articles, people, and the gifts given away in The Net Christian E-Newsletter. The Net provides the latest news and information in the black church, church world, gospel music industry and features Jesus Saves Ministries promotions.
Most of "the catch" in The Net will be posted on the Jesus Saves Ministries Blog. Here, you will find "the other boat," full-length articles, video clips, and links to other websites. You can add to "the catch," too, by posting your comments on the blog. It is our hope that as we lift up Jesus Christ on the internet many will come running asking, "What must I do to be saved!"
Selected “catch” from The Net will be posted on the Jesus Saves Ministries Social Network and discussed on the Jesus Saves Ministries Live Radio Show.
