A fruitless fishing expedition gets turned around and yields great catch when Jesus told the weary, unsuccessful and disappointed fisherman to go back and cast their net in deeper water.
Jesus has the same prescription to seekers of spiritual fish but had largely remained unsuccessful, disappointed and tired.
Fish in deeper spiritual water.
Guilt and Jesus
People are tormented by many “inner demons.” Maraming mga pagdurusa at paghihirap ng loob ang mga tao na para bang ang kanilang kalooban ay lagi na lamang ginugulo ng mga masasamang espriritu. One such cruel “inner demon” is guilt or the accusation of guilt… Guilt bothers, disturbs, vexes, troubles, and agitates people. It causes grave and untold misery and suffering. Gaano karaming pagdurusa at hirap ng loob ang dinaranas natin dahil d’yan? Dahil sa mga bagay na nagawa natin noon na hanggang ngayon ay hindi pa natin napapatawad at patuloy pang sinisisi ang sarili? Ano ang kinalaman ng Panginoong Hesus at ang kanyang ministeryo sa kalagayan nating ito?
