McKenzie Gets the Point - A Surprise Catch

McKenzie Gets the Point

By the time McKenzie heard the key unlock the cabin door, he had manoeuvred himself into a sitting position on the floor with his back against the wall. At least that way he would see what was coming.

To his surprise, it was Maria who entered unaccompanied. McKenzie looked her up and down. As usual, she was impeccably dressed with not even a hair out of place. Her dark eyes locked onto McKenzie’s upturned face. He could detect no obvious signs of emotion other than absolute self confidence. She glided over to McKenzie and asked herself out loud, “What are we going to do with you?”

McKenzie, still gagged and bound, looked into Maria’s face. She stooped, grabbed a corner of the duct tape that was over his mouth and gave it a good tug. McKenzie was now able to talk.
“Thank you”, he said with a hint of cynicism while contorting his mouth and jaw.
“You’re welcome”, Maria responded with obvious sarcasm. “I want to hear you when you scream”.

McKenzie was defenceless. His wrists were tied behind his back and his ankles bound together. Maria carefully positioned her expensively clad foot on McKenzie’s groin and began pushing her pencil-thin stiletto into his crotch.

Maria’s face broke into a crimson lip-gloss smile. “This will be such fun”, she chuckled with perverse pleasure…..

As Miguel and his fishermen winched their nets back towards the boat they knew that their catch was big. Their nets were heavy but as they broke the surface they all stared horrified. There among the silvery sardines was a dead body, or at least what was left after the sharks had finished….

Luke 5:4…..When he had finished speaking, Jesus said to Simon, “Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.”

A Surprise Catch

Luke 5:4…..When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch.”

After a hard night’s fruitless fishing, tired and weary, Simon and his crew returned home. Jesus, to make a space between Himself and the swelling crowd, climbed into Simon’s boat. When He had finished, Jesus asked Simon to go back out to deeper water to fish again.

The catch was so huge that their nets began to break. Even after sharing the fish with their partners, the weight of the fish caused their boats to begin to sink. Simon, recognising the power of Jesus, bowed before him in repentance. Jesus told him that from now on he would fish for people.

This graphic story clearly illustrates that obedience to Jesus, regardless of our feelings or our circumstances, will generate miracles for the glory of God.

Lord Jesus, thank you for abundance. Amen.

McKenzie is Captured - The Fear of the Lord

McKenzie is Captured
Bubbles broke the surface then drifted away on the ebb tide as the weighted body sank silently out of sight to the Mediterranean Sea bed forty metres below. Back on the shore in La Carihuela, Miguel and his crew prepared their nets for a full night’s fishing….
McKenzie sat gagged and bound, tied to a chair on the deck of Don Pedro Dominguez’s luxury yacht, ‘La Dama de la Noche’. He had watched the whole scenario unfold. Paco, the Columbian Overseer, had walked into a trap and fifty kilos of pure cocaine had been seized by the Columbian authorities.
In the ensuing shoot-out, Paco had managed to escape with only minor injuries. Don Pedro made arrangements for his safe passage to Marbella in Southern Spain. After interrogation at the hands of his henchmen, Don Pedro ordered his execution. Paco’s lifeless body, suitably weighted to make it sink and stay sunk, was tossed overboard, naked and cut to attract and feed the sharks that lived in those clear blue waters.
McKenzie was a guest on ‘La Dama de la Noche’, on the invitation of Maria de las Flores who lured him into Don Pedro’s web. So far they had paid him very little attention, but McKenzie knew his time was coming.
Don Pedro’s captain set a course for the marina of Puerto Banus. As they docked, McKenzie was untied from his spectator’s chair and unceremoniously bundled into a cabin below deck. Still bound and gagged, he heard the door lock. They left him in a heap, face down on the Persian rug that smelled of camels, sand and Arabs.
Miguel sailed out from La Carihuela and set his course for familiar fishing grounds in deeper water. He hoped not to snag a shark in his nets as he trawled the waters for sardines…..
Proverbs 1:7…. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.

The Fear of the Lord
Proverbs 1:7…. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.
This scripture does not recommend that we should be afraid of the Lord but rather we should be in awe of Him. We should respect the Lord and at the same time have a healthy dread of displeasing Him. With this attitude we will know Him and do what is right.
This knowledge, once attained, will develop into heavenly wisdom and Christ-like discipline. We would be fools not to pursue and attain such qualities. Heavenly wisdom is the Godly application of the knowledge that comes from knowing God.
Knowing God is having the intimate insights into God that come through our holy reverence and deep love for Him. The wisdom that comes out of this relationship is the manifestation of the character of Christ in us.
What a high and attainable goal. Thank you Jesus.
