Summary

Debate no more where can one find salvation. Discover the profound answer within the teachings of Jesus.

Introduction

I don’t know about you, but I like to be in control! It’s been the human temptation ever since the Garden of Eden. But there is one thing for certain that we cannot be in control of: our eternal destiny.

We Cannot Save Ourselves

In Luke 5:11, we witness a transformative moment when Simon Peter, James, and John leave behind their fishing nets and follow Jesus. This simple act symbolises a profound truth: realising that we cannot save ourselves and that we need Jesus’ help.

The Fishermen Wanted to be in Control of Their Destiny

Before that life-altering decision, these fishermen toiled tirelessly, casting their nets into the sea, hoping to secure their livelihood. However, despite their experience and effort, they often came up empty-handed. It was in this moment of helplessness, after a night of fruitless labour, that Jesus appeared and demonstrated his divine power by filling their nets to the brim.

Simon Peter’s response was to fall to his knees, recognising his insufficiency and sinfulness. He understood that his efforts alone were inadequate and that he needed Jesus. In that realisation, Peter chose to follow the Lord, accepting that salvation was found not in his own abilities, but in Christ.

Where Can One Find Salvation? In Christ Alone!

This episode is a poignant reminder that self-reliance and self-sufficiency can often lead us astray. We may attempt to navigate life’s challenges, striving to save ourselves through our own merit, but ultimately find emptiness and exhaustion. It is only when we humbly acknowledge our limitations, recognising that we need Jesus’ help, that we can experience his transformative power.

Reflection Question:

How often do we attempt to save ourselves through our own efforts, only to find frustration and emptiness? What steps can we take to embrace our own helplessness and invite Jesus to be the source of our salvation in all areas of our lives?
