Let Down Your Nets (Luke 5:1-11)
What if Jesus showed up around here and said, 'Let down your nets, things are fixin’ to get interesting?' Would we hear that as good news?
What if Jesus said, 'I’ve got something for you to do, but it’s not anything like you were expecting?'
Would we find ourselves rolling around on the bottom of the boat, telling Jesus to go someplace else?
Or would we look at who shows up as a gift? The people nobody else has any time and space for? Are those the people God wants to put in our path because they’re just the kind people Jesus was notorious for hanging out with?"”
