Peter is fishing, Christ needs a pulpit to preach. He borrows Peter’s boat and preaches in it. Well, what about Peter’s fishing? Oh the Master will take care of that, for no sooner Christ finished the sermon, he said to Peter, “Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” Peter gets more fish in ten minutes than he might have done in ten weeks if he had been fishing on his own account. Leave your cares with God and cares for him. (Charles Spurgeon)

Oh! Boaster, thy free will is a lie. It is not man that chooses God, but God that chooses man. Christ said, “You have not chosen me but I have chosen you.” He said to the ungodly multitude, “You will not come unto me that you might have life.” In which he gave the death blow to all ideas of free will, when he declared that man will not come to him that he might have life. When he said again in another place as it that were not enough, “No man can come unto me except the Father which sent me draw him.” (Charles Spurgeon on the Sermon Grace exalted boasting excluded)

Hypocrisy is like a leak in the ship that will certainly sink.
The power of godliness will rule over the tongue.
When Israelites were lusting after the meat but their souls were not getting fed but got lean.
We must refuse the cravings of the world in order our souls will prosper.
Although the believers are imperfect yet accepted in Christ Jesus because of the righteousness of Christ.
Sometimes the Christians are hit by stormy winds from hell, we may get hurt, sometimes moved but cannot be removed as we are secure in Christ Jesus.
