Our theme for 2019 is “Follow,” and it is based on the response of Jesus’ first disciples to that miraculous catch of fish in Luke 5. According to verse 11, after the miraculous catch of fish, we are told that Peter, Andrew, James, and John “brought their boats to land…left everything and followed him,” referring to Jesus. This morning as we establish our annual theme, we emphasize following because our primary identity in relation to Jesus is supposed to be that of a follower and our primary responsibility is to be making more followers. But do we understand what it takes to follow? Today, we explore 3 things we learn about following from Luke 5:11.
And when they had brought their boats to land, they left everything and followed him.”
