Reflections on Luke 5 – 8

[Jesus] said to Simon, “Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” Luke 5:4

I know you have been working hard and your nets are empty
Put out into the deep
I understand you want to give up
Put out into the deep and let down your nets
Yes, I see you are tired but please trust me
Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch

Simon answered, “Master, we toiled all night and took nothing! But at your word I will let down the nets.” Luke 5:5

Obedience requires faith
Faith results in action
Action reaps rewards

And when they had done this, they enclosed a large number of fish, and their nets were breaking…and the boats began to sink. Luke 5:6 7

Trust Him
Believe Him
Go Deeper

And when Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, “Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord.” Luke 5:8

Be amazed at His glory
Be broken in humbleness
Be contrite in spirit

Jesus said to Simon, “Do not be afraid, from now on you will be catching men.”  And when they had brought their boats to land, they left everything and followed him. Luke 5:10 – 11

He calls you
Come follow me
Go Deeper

“Follow me because I’m the King you’ve been looking for. Follow me because I have authority over everything, yet I have humbled myself for you. I want you to keep trusting me; to stick with me, not turn back not give up, turn to me in disappointments … I’m going to take you places that will make you say, ‘Why in the world are you taking me there?’ Even then I want you to trust me.” ~Tim Keller, King’s Cross
