Simon Peter said unto him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst not follow me now; but thou shalt follow me afterwards.

John 13:36.

Everyone cannot follow you every time to every place.  There is a place to which even faithful followers cannot follow you; a season when not even the closest of protocols who had followed you to the exclusive Mount of Transfiguration should follow you further (Matthew 17:1-3).  If you can’t discern the seasons, there could be a crisis of wasted sacrifices, and high priests denied access into the holiest for sisterly pollutions from committed common hands (John 20:17).

  1. Not all Clean

Sometimes we waste precious waters washing the feet of folks whose heart is already sold.  The cleaning power is not all in the water or in the washer.  Holy motions become mere rituals when hearts are far from acts.

In the closing moments of His ministry on earth, Jesus stooped to wash the feet of His disciples.  At the end of that precious process, this was His solemn announcement: “ye are clean, but not all.”  As if it had not been said clearly enough, it is repeated in the next verse: “Ye are not all clean” (John 13:10, 11).

­Helpers of God

Come to think of it: if Jesus was the Son of God, or God Himself, as we learn, did He need a mortal’s boat?  Couldn’t Heaven have dispatched a chariot of fire for Him to preach from?  Did the great God have to ask a mere man for his boat?  Wasn’t that moment the unique opportunity to display His greatness as He stood mid-air above the waters to preach the mysteries of God?  Does the Almighty God need mortal partners in His Kingdom projects?  Do I have a boat He might need this morning?  Could that partnership be the key to ending the reproaches of a protracted night?

  1. A Miracle Elsewhere

Every miracle does not take place in every location, otherwise Jesus would not have needed to instruct Peter to move from where he already was, to elsewhere called “the deep.”   Only He knows where your treasures are hid. Sometimes we labour much because we are in the not-deep wrong place.  There, we blame the barren rivers and an ‘unkind God.’  Some miracles might never be, until we are in the deep place where they await us. “Launch out…”!

GOOD MORNING  (Part 1 of 3)

1 And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret,

2 And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets.

3 And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon’s, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship.

4 Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.

5 And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.

6 And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.

7 And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink.

Luke 5:1-7.
