Fishing For Hearts

I do not have to read far into the Gospel to find its message. It starts with Jesus proclaiming that today “is the time of fulfillment” to “repent, and believe in the gospel” (Mark 1:15). His advice is not just the good news for all humanity, but also the good news for us as precious individuals. The message is so simple: “come after Me” (Mark 1:17). Jesus told an unknown fisherman that same thing, and that man came to be known as Peter, and Peter came to know Jesus.

Are you a fisherman like Peter: casting nets in the ocean of religions looking to catch that Truth to fulfill a deeper hunger? Are you catching underweight fillings or nothing at all? I did not know where to find the Truth until He showed me: “Cast the net over the right side of the boat and you will find something” (John 21:6).

What will you find?
