So That You May Know

Luke 5:1-11

This is the disciple’s second call.  After the first call Matthew 4:18-22, Mark 1:16-20, Peter, Andrew, James and John went back to fishing.  They continued to watch Jesus, however, as he established his authority in the synagogue, healed the sick, and cast out demons.  Now he also established his authority in their lives—he met them on their level and helped them in their work.  From this point on, they left their nets and remained with Jesus.  For us to follow Jesus is more than just acknowledging him as Savior, it means leaving our past behind and devoting our future to him.
