DVD: At Your Word, I Will
Jesus is standing by the Sea of Galilee, standing in a boat preaching the Word of God, sharing it with the people – it’s just a reminder for us, when you study the Gospels, that disciple making moments aren’t bound to our gathered times of worship such as Sunday mornings, or in New Testament times, on Sabbaths in the synagogue. When you study Jesus’ ministry, it was through common everyday moments where Jesus was preaching the Word and sharing it.
“When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, ‘Put out into deep water and let down the nets for a catch.’” Jesus has just stepped into Peter’s office and given him instructions on how he should go about fishing. You have to remember Peter is a fisherman by trade and has lived on the Sea of Galilee his whole life. He probably grew up going out with his father on the fishing boat. Peter knows fishing.
