Broken Works Better

I saw a sign that asked, what works better when it’s broken? The answer was a horse. And I thought, that’s right. An unbroken horse never wins a race. An unbroken horse is never even in a race. And then I thought about that some more. What works better when it’s broken? A Christian. Then they have to run the race in faith, depending on God, desiring his glory. And winning a great reward. What works better when it’s broken? A Christian.

Still fishing

Matthew 4:18-22 / Mark 1:16-20 …

When Jesus calls us into His service, this may mean that we are still doing some of the same things, but in new ways and in new places. In a sense, the early disciples weren’t going to change their occupation; they were going to transform their occupation. They left their nets but picked up new ones. They were still going to be casting nets, and mending nets, but now it would be casting new nets for mended souls.

For us, we may not be changing our physical occupation, but we transform it into a spiritual occupation. We are still doing what we were doing but now doing it for God. Ministry doesn’t necessarily mean we have to leave town or leave our job or family setting.

Sometimes, however, Jesus invades our workspace, our means of means, and calls us out into territory where He alone must provide as we follow. Other people, including our family, may be left to the former work, but you must go on. We seek different streams, and for different fish.

The point is about following in our hearts. Jesus transforms our occupation, our orientation. If we give our hearts we’ll give our minds, hands, legs, wallet (job). It is not about glamour but about going (Matthew 28:19-20). Has your following Jesus transformed the way you go about your work (Colossians 3:23-24 / Ephesians 4:28 / 1 Corinthians 15:58 / 1 Peter 2:18-21)?

If not, Jesus is still fishing for your heart.
