My Reflection for Thursday September 5, Twenty-second Week in Ordinary Time Luke 5:1-11

Gospel: Luke 5:1-11
While the crowd was pressing in on Jesus and listening to the word of God, he was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret. He saw two boats there alongside the lake; the fishermen had disembarked and were washing their nets. Getting into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon, he asked him to put out a short distance from the shore. Then he sat down and taught the crowds from the boat. After he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into deep water and lower your nets for a catch.” Simon said in reply, “Master, we have worked hard all night and have caught nothing, but at your command I will lower the nets.” When they had done this, they caught a great number of fish and their nets were tearing. They signaled to their partners in the other boat to come to help them.

They came and filled both boats so that the boats were in danger of sinking. When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at the knees of Jesus and said, “Depart from me, Lord, for I am a sinful man.” For astonishment at the catch of fish they had made seized him and all those with him, and likewise James and John, the sons of Zebedee, who were partners of Simon. Jesus said to Simon, “Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching men.” When they brought their boats to the shore, they left everything and followed him.

My Reflection:
After witnessing the miracle, Simon Peter said to Jesus, “Depart from me, Lord for I am a sinful man.” There was that feeling of unworthiness in Peter because like you and me Peter was also sinful.

Who is worthy before Jesus? No one for we are all sinners but the love of Jesus is infinite HE always manifest this to us in everyday of our lives. However,  we often times fail to recognize this love of Jesus because many of us are very busy. We have no more time for God.

After fishing for nothing naturally the fishermen were all dead tired. However, Simon Peter and his fellow fishermen listened and gave time to the command of Jesus to lower their nets into deep water. And right there they caught many fish, thus they witnessed the power of Jesus to create miracles. If we want to feel or witness the miracles of Jesus in our lives, HE only asks us one thing and that is none other than a little of our time.

Do we still have time for Jesus?
