I wake early, grab a mug of hot coffee and head to read as I so need to fill and nourish my soul.

Countless times, in the natural realm, I have asked family, “What would you like to eat?” Yet many times, I come to His Table not knowing for certain what it is I need. Such was the case this morning.

“One day as Jesus was walking along the shore of the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers – Simon, also called Peter, and Andrew – throwing a net into the water, for they fished for a living. Jesus called out to them, “Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for real people!”  And they left their nets at once and followed him.” (Matthew 4:18-20, NLT)

I have already read these verses several times this morning and the words keep jumping off the page, filling me with exactly that which I needed at this very moment:

  • Jesus sees us. Jesus saw two brothers. Their names are given to us. As Jesus walked along each day, He took note of those around Him. We do not go unnoticed by our Savior. Peter and Andrew were working, going about their normal, perhaps mundane day. And Jesus saw them. Jesus sees us in the midst of our everyday routines.
  • Jesus calls to us. Peter and Andrew were busy and may not have even noticed Jesus watching them. Jesus calls to them. Did He call them by name? Did He shout to them? We don’t know but we know this … Jesus called out to them in the midst of while they were doing what they did each day – they fished for a living. And Jesus will call out to each of us in the midst of our everyday routines.
  • Jesus want to show us how to live. These were experienced fishermen who knew all about how to go about doing what they knew to do. Yet Jesus says to them, “I will show you how….”. He wants to show us how to live with purpose and with passion so that our lives bear fruit for His glory. Jesus wants to show us how to live each day in the midst of our everyday routines.

I came to His Table this morning not knowing what I needed.

And He met me in the midst of my everyday routine.

Jesus saw.

Jesus called.

Jesus showed me.
