Re:Verse reading–Luke 5:1-11 (day four)
It is a principle taught in Scripture…Paul told us about it in Philippians. “And my God will supply all of your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” (4:19) Simon witnessed it firsthand. Jesus provided a catch of fish that was overwhelming. It was impressive, but it was not the miracle that awed Simon. Simon recognized that only the creator God could do what Jesus did…he recognized Jesus for who He was. The amazement of Simon quickly resulted in his recognition of his own sinfulness. In the presence of the glory of God, our sinfulness is magnified to its reality.
Simon’s response was to repent and worship…what is your response? Everyone responds to the gospel, one way or another. Some respond like Simon, some reject the truth. When we recognize our sin and know the consequences of our sin, what we do next is critical to our eternal life or death. We are without excuse…God has made it plain…how will you respond?
