As Jesus passed along the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the sea – for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, “Follow me and I will make you fish for people.” And immediately they left their nets and followed him. – Mark: 1:16-18

What authority Jesus embodies! He speaks and people drop what they’re doing and respond.
He doesn’t even need a net to catch them.
But these aren’t just anyone – they’re hungry.

Therefore you weak and feeble Ones, put your Trust in him; for he giveth Power to the Faint, and in them that have no Might he encreaseth Strength. (Elizabeth Bathurst, 1655?-1685)
