    Sunday, April 28



    From now on you will be catching [people] alive.—Luke 5:10.

    During a preaching tour
    throughout Galilee, Jesus and his disciples boarded a boat to
    withdraw into a lonely place. But crowds followed them on foot.

    Those who came that day numbered
    “about five thousand men,besides women and young children.â€
    (Matt. 14:21) On another occasion, a crowd approached Jesus, desiring to be healed and
    to hear him speak. Included were “four thousand men, besides women and young children.â€


    (Matt. 15:38)


    Evidently, many
    men were among the people who came to Jesus and showed interest
    in his teaching. In fact, he expected many others to respond,for after providing a miraculous
    catch of fish, Jesus told Simon Peter the words of today’s text.(Luke 5:10) His disciples were to
    lower their nets into the sea of mankind and could expect that their ‘catch’ would include many
    men. Today, men likewise show interest in the Scriptural message we preach and respond to it.


    —Matt. 5:3.


    w11 11/15 4:1, 2

    todays text happens to be were I am in my own bible reading.I get 2 points first they had been toiling all day with no catch so jesus said lower your nets for a catch and when they did they got more than they could handle..so wait on the lord...next I notice when jesus ministered to the public he fed them food several times..that tells me that a valuble tool for ministry is a public feed. perhaps some nice elders would care to consider this..

    Would be nice to see this implemented at the conventions - families are expected to spend money on gas to travel there, pay parking fees (goes to local council, not the Society), pay hotel rooming, pay for use of the Hall, donate towards the world wide work....oh and you have to BYO (bring your own lunch).
