Community & Purpose - Luke 5:1-11

May 19, 2019

Have you ever wondered if there is more to life than what you are experiencing?

Luke 5:1-11 is the story of Jesus calling four of the disciples (Simon Peter, Andrew, James, & John) to follow Him. It is the well-known, "...I will make you fishers of men" story.

Jesus often taught about what it means and what it looks like to live life to the full. In this encounter, Jesus shows Peter (and the other 3 disciples-to-be) what can happen with our lives when we choose to listen (hear & obey) to His guidance. The fishermen were "astonished" to the point of leaving everything behind to follow Jesus. What is our response? What are we willing to do in response to the reality Jesus offers?
