Full Time Calling Of The LORD - Luke 5:4-11

Luke 5:4 When he had finished speaking, he told Simon, "Push out into deep water, and lower your nets for a catch."

Luke 5:5 Simon answered, "Master, we have worked hard all night and caught nothing. But if you say so, I'll lower the nets."

Luke 5:6 After the men had done this, they caught so many fish that the nets began to tear.

Luke 5:7 So they signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. They came and filled both boats until the boats began to sink.

Luke 5:8 When Simon Peter saw this, he fell down at Jesus' knees and said, "Leave me, Lord! I am a sinful man!"—

Luke 5:9 because Simon and all the people who were with him were amazed at the number of fish they had caught,

Luke 5:10 and so were James and John, Zebedee's sons and Simon's partners. Then Jesus told Simon, "Stop being afraid. From now on you will be catching people."

Luke 5:11 So when they brought the boats to shore, they left everything and followed Jesus.

I. There's An Altar Call For The Full Time Called

II. He Will Interrupt Your Being Busy And Call You

Before this event, the LORD JESUS have used Peter's boat as His pulpit. It's a great way to be blessed. Give your hearts to the LORD and let Him use you and all that is yours.

I. There's An Altar Call For The Full Time Called

After Peter's boat being the pulpit, the LORD rewarded Him for a nice catch. Altar calls usually happens after preaching, remember after the LORD have preached, He never knew the LORD is calling Him to this service, of serving God's people.

Luke 5:3 So Jesus got into one of the boats (the one that belonged to Simon) and asked him to push out a little from the shore. Then he sat down and began to teach the crowds from the boat.

You can belong to the crowd but will missed God's calling, belong to the few. There are crowds wanting to be with the Lord but be with the few, who continued to work. The Lord is going for the hard worker.

II. He Will Interrupt Your Being Busy And Call You

The Lord have proved that He can provide miraculously to a person who is full time called in the ministry. He provided first to Peter and then He let Peter choose between the successful "catch" or Him.

Peter, James and John are all there, Jesus made an offer.

Luk 5:10 and so were James and John, Zebedee's sons and Simon's partners. Then Jesus told Simon, "Stop being afraid. From now on you will be catching people."

The offer is plain and simple, no extra vanilla, no pressure, no comfort. "From now on you will be catching people." Leave your comfort zone, stop believing in yourselves in the business you're doing now, if you're a computer programmer, stop believing in yourself that you can do it all, see here, a carpenter proved a bunch of fishers man that they're wrong, that a person can still catch a lot of fishes during day time.

Don't ever think that if you're successful in your current craft and business, you are called to be like that. You might say to yourself, I'm a good computer programmer and this is my calling, no, the fact that the Lord showed this to Peter, it's because He is called and He is meant to leave these success all alone and follow God in the full time ministry.
