he said to Simon, “Now go out
where it is deeper, and let down
your nets to catch some fish.”

worked hard all last night and
didn’t catch a thing. But if you say
so, I’ll let the nets down again.”
Luke 5:6 (NLT)
6 And this time their nets were
so full of fish they began to tear!
Luke 5:7 (NLT)
7 A shout for help brought their
partners in the other boat, and
soon both boats were filled with
fish and on the verge of sinking.

happened, he fell to his knees before
Jesus and said, “Oh, Lord, please
leave me—I’m such a sinful man.”

number of fish they had caught,
as were the others with him.

... “Don’t be afraid! From now on you’ll be
fishing for people!”

The longing for adventure
It is inside everyone
Real adventure is better than
living vicariously through
characters in movies or books
God has an adventure planned for you
Some people search their entire lives
Hoping to satisfy that longing
Many search their whole lives only to
discover when death approaches that
their search has been in vain
Only Jesus has the way for
your true adventure
Hard, Yes! Dangerous, Yes!
Worth it? YES!!!
FOLLOWING JESUS WILL BLESS YOU IMMEASURABLY
Awestruck

professional fishermen were amazed.

they had caught, as were the others with

Lord’s presence
When we follow Christ God
supplies our needs beyond
anything that we can imagine

8 And God will generously provide all you
need. Then you will always have everything
you need and plenty left over to share with
others.
2 Corinthians 9:9 (NLT)
9 As the Scriptures say, “They share freely
and give generously to the poor. Their
good deeds will be remembered forever.”

20 Now all glory to God, who is able,
through his mighty power at work within
us, to accomplish infinitely more than we
might ask or think.

says of the first Christians in Jerusalem
Acts 5:42
42 And every day, in the Temple and from
house to house, they continued to teach
and preach this message: “Jesus is the
Messiah.”
Later, when persecution forced many
Christians to flee Jerusalem
“Those who had been scattered preached
the word wherever they went”
Acts 8:4
But the believers who were scattered
preached the Good News about Jesus
wherever they went.
Eventually the early believers preached the
gospel to Gentiles as well as to Jews

The Lord’s hand was with them, and a
great number of people believed and
turned to the Lord
