Luke 5:1-11
"Under the Surface: There's Bigger Fish to Fry"

“As the emergence of His ministry continues, this week we find Jesus calling the first of His disciples. While often presented as a call to evangelism, what we actually see here is a declaration of God’s two words – Law & Gospel. After using Peter’s boat for some open-air teaching, a miraculous catch of fish prompts Peter to respond in a way that is reminiscent of many in the Bible who experienced a close encounter with the LORD. God’s one word of remedy – the Gospel - not only raises the dead, but also produces a life of fruitfulness as Jesus’ transforming work moves us to love one another and become Fishers of Men.”
