Casting a net to capture good news from the deep.
In Luke 5:1-11, we find the story where Jesus borrowed Peter’s boat to teach from. After He was done teaching, He told Peter and his crew to go out deeper and put their nets down. After hearing Rabbi Jesus teach, Peter figured he would trust His word and give it a try. He was skeptical, because the night before Peter and his crew had fished all night and caught nothing.
Peter was already coping with the bad news resulting from a fruitless night of work. He didn’t need anymore bad news. No one wants a second helping of poor results and bad news. Still, he told Jesus they would do it—just because He had told them to.
After following Jesus’ direction, Peter caught so many fish in his nets, that he had to call another boat over to help them pull up the catch.
That’s what we’re doing with this campaign. There’s enough bad news and negative energy being passed about and shared across the internet. We’re trying to catch some good news for a change! We want to go out into the deep and let our net down to see if we can come up with some good news from others.
