THE GREAT CATCH

Luke 5:1-6

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.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.” when they had done so, they caught such

a large number of fish that their nets began to break.

INTRO:

I. WHAT MOTIVATES PEOPLE TO GOD – Luke 5:1

A. The Word of God

B. Teaching them about the things of God

II. THE REACTION OF JESUS COMMANDS – Luke 5:4

A. The Command: “Put out into the deep water and let down the nets for a catch”

B. The Answer: “Master, we’ve work hard all night”

i. When we try and do things ourselves

ii. When we try and do things involving our family

iii. When we try and do things our ways involving others

C. The Reaction: “We haven’t caught anything”

i. Realize that we haven’t accomplished anything by ourselves”

ii. Recognize that we need him to be able to accomplish what we want

D. The Respond: “But because you say so, I will let down the nets”

i. Our strength doesn’t have anything to do with this

ii. Our logic doesn’t have nothing to with this

iii. Our preparation doesn’t have anything to do with it

III. SEEING WHAT PETER SAW: WHEN YOU RECEIVE THE WORD

A. It is a step of faith

i. Heb 11:1 “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

B. It is a step of obedience since the beginning – Lu. 5:3

C. It is going that extra mile – They had worked all night but stayed

D. It is a personal relationship - “But because you say so...”

E. It is going to His House of Worship

i. Ez. 47:1 “The man brought me back to the entrance of the temple, and I saw water coming out from under the threshold of the temple toward the east (for the temple faced east). The water was coming down from under the south side of the temple, south of the altar.”

F. It is going into that next level – “Put out into deep water”

i. Ez 47:3-9 “And when the man that had the line in his hand went forth eastward, he measured a thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the waters were to the ankles. 4 Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through the waters; the waters were to the knees. Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through; the waters were to the loins. 5 Afterward he measured a thousand; and it was a river that I could not pass over: for the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed over. 6 And he said unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen this? Then he brought me, and caused me to return to the brink of the river. 7 Now when I had returned, behold, at the bank of the river were very many trees on the one side and on the other. 8 Then said he unto me, These waters issue out toward the east country, and go down into the desert, and go into the sea: which being brought forth into the sea, the waters shall be healed. 9 And it shall come to pass, that every thing that liveth, which moveth, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live: and there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come thither: for they shall be healed; and every thing shall live whither the river cometh.
