VOL. 51 : N o 4 : IN PRINT SINCE '73 INSIDE APRIL Editor's Letter Do It Again! Unlike my three adults sons, I don't share a strong interest in some sports. I do, however, try to keep up with who's winning, who was traded and who's complaining the loudest— for the sake of the occasional office "water cooler" conversation. What I do still find interesting, though, is Nike's catchy little campaign slogan from the late 1980s, "Just Do It!" The company reportedly made nearly $10 billion worldwide in merchandise sales—all based on the urging of those three little words. I sometimes think about that slogan when reading about how, after Peter and his buddies had spent all day and night fishing but had caught nothing, Jesus came along and told Peter, "Now go out where it is deeper, and let down your nets to catch some fish" (Luke 5:4, New Living Translation). In other words, Jesus said: "Do it again!" There's no indication these men were complaining because they had nothing to show for a hard day's work. What is obvious, though, is that they were tired. That aside, Peter said to Jesus: "Master…we worked hard all last night and didn't catch a thing. But if you say so, I'll let the nets down again." The Bible says, "This time their nets were so full of fish they began to tear! A shout for help brought their partners in the other boat, and soon both boats were filled with fish and on the verge of sinking" (verses 5-7, NLT). Sometimes we do things believing we're in God's timing, that we're moving according to His direction and instruction, and we see good results. But then there are times when, after we've tried and failed, we just sit back, waiting for a miraculous move of God to happen. We think, Well, I've tried and I've tried and it's just not working, so I'm not going to try anymore. Besides, if this was God's will for me it wouldn't be so hard. Jesus didn't need to ask Peter if they had caught any fish, because He already knew the answer. He wanted to see Peter obey His instruction and just "do it again!" Opportunity is all around us. There is a time to go after it, but there is also a time to be still. The important thing is that we recognize the difference. That we move when God says move. When He says to do it, even if that means doing it again, just do it! Hope you enjoy this month's issue! Ronald C. Jordan Managing Editor Hope you enjoy this month's issue! Ronald C.
