Rest assured, Jesus catches hearts! Luke 5:1-11.
Simon had Jesus at his house and now Jesus is at the shore of the lake using his fishing equipment to teach the crowds that are hungry for Jesus’ teaching. Simon has been observing Jesus for some time. Now out in deep water, Simon’s fishing nets are literally bursting with fish; so many that the boats begin to sink. For Simon the evidence is compelling: Jesus is to be worshiped and followed.
Questions to ponder:
-Simon observed Jesus, worshiped Jesus, then followed Jesus. How did you get to know Jesus?
- What did Jesus mean when he said “you will fish for people?"
-The best way to learn something is to teach it. Since we follow Jesus, who have we invited to follow along with us?
