Christ's Specialty

When He had finished speaking, He said to Simon, "Put out into deep water and let down your nets for a catch." -Luke 5:4
Jesus told Peter how to fish. Now, had Peter not already known Christ, he might have thought: "Me fisherman, You carpenter. I won't tell You how to build, and You don't tell me how to fish."
But one of the most critical reasons believers experience defeat is because we categorize only a few areas of our lives as Christ's arena. So, as if to save Him the extra trouble of dealing with things that don't concern Him, we leave Christ at church to deal with areas related to His expertise. (from Beth Moore's Jesus Day by Day)
What are you not including God in today? Do you know more about ____________ than Him? Do you leave Him at church on Sundays and carry on the rest of the week without Him.
Give Him the rest of your week too!
