Jesus and Peter Go Fishing (Luke 5:1-11)

July 14, 2019

The kingdom of God is here, and the King who reigns uses His power to bring people into the kingdom. Jesus never recruits by force, but transforms men so that they see God for who He really is, and then see themselves for who they really are. Ironically, when a person therein feels the least deserving of God's grace, that is when the Lord extends the most mercy and pulls them close. In Luke 5:1-11, Jesus and Peter go fishing. Jesus "catches" Peter and then commissions Peter to "catch men" alive.
