REALITY: Deadliest Catch
Everything Jesus did was strategic.
Knowing Peter, James, John, and Andrew were not yet 100% on board, He spoke to them in a language that they would understand.
Even though exhausted from an unsuccessful night of fishing…Peter obeyed.
Peter was ashamed
· Lack of faith
· Unwillingness to follow the original call
· General unworthiness as a sinner
Jesus response: From now on you will catch people!
Jesus got the four fisherman’s attention…and they left everything to follow Him.
· We’ve been called, it’s time to follow!
· We should be strategic in our efforts!
· Our mission is to catch people!
Main Point: The reason this catch we are going on is deadly is not because we will be attacked or persecuted…it is deadly because if we don’t do it people miss the kingdom!
