Temptation – part 2
Bible Text: Matthew 4:1-11 | Preacher: Darrell Clarke | Series: Temptation
Simon Peter, James and John had just returned from a day of unproductive fishing when Jesus step into Peter’s boat and said lets set out into the water. Jesus had been surrounded by people eager to hear his message and he needed space apart from them to speak. Afterward Jesus tells Simon Peter to push out further and cast his nets one more time. Peter thought the nets would come back empty as was the case earlier in the day – but they didn’t. His nets were bursting…and he called James and John to come out and help retrieve the bounty. Simon Peter than realized who Jesus was and his life changed forever because Jesus stepped into his boat.
What happens to us when Jesus steps into our BOAT and calls us into DiscipleSHIP? How do we respond? Do we protest? Find excuses? Or do we commit to Jesus to become fishers of people? This Sunday we will explore what happens when Jesus steps into our boat.
