Tit 3:4  But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared,
Tit 3:5  Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
Tit 3:6  Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;
Tit 3:7  That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

It was the love of God that gave us our saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. Not by our efforts, but by his righteousness in our place, by the washing of regeneration...I think of a generator that produces electrical power. Regeneration is new power given by our rebirth into God's family. We are born again of His Spirit and dedicated to his service. We were bought with the price of the blood of our saviour, redeemed from the devil, bought, paid for, by the blood of the Lamb. We receive new life, behold all things become new. We are renewed, made new by the Holy Ghost. We are justified, judged by God the Father as not guilty of our sins because the blood of Christ has covered them. By believing in him we were made new by our Father in heaven. We receive grace, favor not earned, and the great treasure of being joint heirs with Jesus who is heir of all things and above all things. Shout Hallelujah!

Be Zealous

Tit 2:11  For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
Tit 2:12  Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
Many claim to be Christians, but few live a changed life. Where is the fruit of repentance?

Tit 2:13  Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
The Great God is Jesus at his coming in glory. He is not only a man, but God who came in a man. He will rule with all dominion and authority; King of kings and Lord of lords.

Tit 2:14  Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

He gave himself to us so that we may partake of the Holy Spirit and conform to the image of Jesus Christ. We gave him our sins to be legally removed and he made us the sons of God. His love is great for us, and our love should be returned. All in the name of Jesus. Love, truth and light to shine in a world in desperate need of a Saviour. Be charged with his presence and show the countenance of a child of God. Be zealous of good works.

Luk 5:3  And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon's, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship.
Luk 5:4  Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.
Luk 5:5  And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.
Luk 5:6  And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.
Luk 5:7  And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink.
Luk 5:8  When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord.
Luk 5:9  For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken:
Luk 5:10  And so was also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not; from henceforth thou shalt catch men.

Jesus was in the boat with Peter when he told him to throw out the net in the deep. Jesus had just finished preaching from the boat the word of God. First comes the word of God to the sent ones, then comes the harvest. Peter had toiled all night on his own, but now Jesus was with him and he was showing him where to go to get the fish. He brought in a great harvest. When Peter realized just who Jesus was, he was humbled before him, but Jesus commands that he be a fisher of men, Jesus would go with his sent ones. Preach the word, go out in the deep, into the heart of the people, in distant places. Go where I send you and you will have a harvest. Another time Jesus spoke to Peter after Jesus had risen from the grave, showing that he had power over life and death. He came to bring life.
Joh 21:3  Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing.
Joh 21:4  But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus.
Joh 21:5  Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? They answered him, No.
Joh 21:6  And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.
Joh 21:7  Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher's coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea.
Joh 21:8  And the other disciples came in a little ship; (for they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging the net with fishes.
Joh 21:9  As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread.
Joh 21:10  Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the fish which ye have now caught.
Joh 21:11  Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken.
Joh 21:12  Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask him, Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord.
This time the Lord tells them to throw the net on the right side. The right side was where the saved will be, the sheep on the right, the goats on the left. Every fish was saved, and they were counted, a specific number. Jesus knows who will be his saved people, pulled out of the sea of humanity, but we do not. We fish for the lost and he knows who will be his. There is another net I want to speak of; the dragnet.
Mat 13:47  Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:
Mat 13:48  Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.
Mat 13:49  So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,
Mat 13:50  And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
We are talking now of the angels casting the spiritual net, gathering the saved from the unsaved, the good from the evil ones. I also see that not every catch in our nets from preaching the word and evangelizing will be saved. We catch them, the Lord cleans them up and sorts them. The Lord knows where are his own. We do our part and he does the saving and the sorting depending upon the response of the people to his invitation. We do our part and the Lord does his part. He draws them to himself.
Joh 3:14  And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
Joh 3:15  That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
Joh 3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Joh 3:17  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Joh 3:18  He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
Joh 3:19  And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
Joh 3:20  For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
Joh 3:21  But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

Go fishing with Jesus for lost souls.
