Don’t be afraid!
“His partners, James and John, the sons of Zebedee, were also amazed. Jesus replied to Simon, «Don’t be afraid! From now on you’ll be fishing for people!»”
Luke 5:10 NLT
Jesus wants that we fulfill the mission of life that He has given us to do; He wants we make decisions and act. He does not want that fear or amazement paralyzes us.
We can even stay perplexed at wonders that Jesus makes in our lives; but remain immobile, contemplating what He has done and is doing in us, is not ultimately what Jesus expects us to do.
But we must be aware that obey and fulfill what Jesus wants us to do, many times could will involve, forgetting and putting aside what we’ve been doing all our lives.
