UNISON CONFESSION OF SIN • so that we may delight in your will • and walk in your ways, • to the glory of your holy name. • Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
Scripture Reading and Sermon JESUS THE MENTOR: ‘…but because you say so…’ Reading: Luke 5:1-11 (p. 1032)
Luke 5:1-11 (p. 1032) • 1 One day as Jesus was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret, with the people crowding around him and listening to the word of God, • 2 he saw at the water's edge two boats, left there by the fishermen, who were washing their nets. • 3 He got into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon, and asked him to put out a little from shore. Then he sat down and taught the people from the boat.
Luke 5:1-11 (p. 1032) • 4 When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, "Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch." • 5 Simon answered, "Master, we've worked hard all night and haven't caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets." • 6 When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break.
Luke 5:1-11 (p. 1032) • 7 So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink. • 8 When Simon Peter saw this, he fell at Jesus' knees and said, "Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man!"
Luke 5:1-11 (p. 1032) • 9 For he and all his companions were astonished at the catch of fish they had taken, • 10 and so were James and John, the sons of Zebedee, Simon's partners. Then Jesus said to Simon, "Don't be afraid; from now on you will catch men." • 11 So they pulled their boats up on shore, left everything and followed him.
JESUS THE MENTOR (Luke 5)‘…because you say so…’ • HOW does the Kingdom of God ADVANCE? • Mentoring: One person at a time. • Spotlight in Luke 5 on Peter’s terror-stricken reaction to Jesus. The Sea of Galilee (= Lake of Gennesaret)
- RECOGNISE YOUR KING • 1-2:Peter is in earshot. • 3:Peter becomes more entangled in Jesus’ net… • 4-5: The relationship is no longer on Peter’s terms: Jesus is authoritative, even about fishing! • 5:‘…because you say so…’ = literally “at your word.” • JESUS calls the shots! Fishing near Capernaum
2 - FALL BEFORE YOUR KING1 - RECOGNISE YOUR KING • 6-7: The only LIMIT to the catch is the number of boats available! • 8-10: All about Jesus’Authority • Echo of Psalm 8:You made him ruler over the works of your hands; you put everything under his feet: all flocks and herds, and the beasts of the field, the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas. Near Sunset: the nets are ready at Galilee
2 - FALL BEFORE YOUR KING1 - RECOGNISE YOUR KING • 8b: ‘…he fell at Jesus' knees and said, "Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man!"' • Like ASLAN: Jesus just seems to get bigger. • Peter’s greatest sin: not bowing to Jesus’Authority. Near Sunset: the nets are ready at Galilee
3 - DRAW OTHERS TO YOUR KING1 - RECOGNISE YOUR KING 2 - FALL BEFORE YOUR KING • 10b-11: The catch of fish is forgotten. The old career is forgotten! • Now on: catch men! • Wrong time? Wrong gifts? Wrong place? • But Jesus has authority. “…from now on you WILL catch men." The net-maker’s needle
3 - DRAW OTHERS TO YOUR KING1 - RECOGNISE YOUR KING 2 - FALL BEFORE YOUR KING • TO REFLECT ON: • Think of just ONE PERSON to pray for, to love, and to speak to for Jesus Christ. The net-maker’s needle
