Do Not Fear

In Luke 5:1-11 we see Jesus doing a miracle that doesn’t even seem to have any spiritual implication.  He simply instructs fishermen to go back out after a long night of fruitless fishing and to drop their nets one more time.  This isn’t Jesus’ area of expertise.  It’s fine for him to be teaching the crows, he’s a teacher.  He even had carpentry experience.  But to tell experienced fishermen how to do their job is a bit audacious.  Probably because of past interactions where they had seen Jesus heal people, they are willing to comply, but not without letting everyone know fist that this is crazy.   What follows is not only miraculous, but it is life changing.  Simon Peter’s response shows us that he is greatly impacted and Jesus’ statement leave us with 3 life changing truths.
