What in your life needs attention that you can follow the command of Jesus to cast out into the deep? Just as the ship workers take care of the maintenance needs of the vessel, we too, need to prepare ourselves for the pilgrimage of faith upon which we have embarked. Are you taking care of the temple of the Holy Spirit--which is you? Are you ready, willing, and able to share your faith with others?
Are you participating in the sacraments regularly? Are you praying with frequency and fervor? Are you studying the faith? Are you reading and praying with the Sacred Scriptures? Are you loving God with your whole heart, mind, soul, and strength? Are you loving your neighbor as yourself?
I invite you to read the Acts of the Apostles in the Bible and experience the zeal of the early Church. Let the Word of God penetrate you in a profound manner so that you are filled with the Holy Spirit. This has the potential to motivate and inspire you to action just as it did the apostles. Do you have that burning desire?
My final question is straightforward. Are you equipped and ready to cast your net out into the deep?
