Holy Mackerel

Luke 5:1-11

As Jesus performs a cool miracle of causing thousands of fish to be caught in the nets of Peter and some other fishermen (soon-to-be-disciples), Peter responds by falling at Jesus’ feet and saying, “Go away from me, because I’m a sinful man, Lord!” Jesus ignores this request and instead sees something in Peter that no one else has ever seen, including Peter – Jesus sees someone that can be used by God to do awesome things! So, whether we’ve always been ‘losers’, ‘second-stringers’, or ‘not-good-enoughs’, God can redeem and transform us, and He truly believes that we can BE JUST LIKE HIM. This means that He can use us big-time, if we’ll not listen to the crowds… and leave everything behind to FOLLOW Him!
