The calling of Peter

  • Series: Peter the fragile rock #1
  • Scripture: Luke 5:1-11
  • Location: St Paul's Cooma

Beginning a short series tracing the personal development of Peter – fisherman, disciple, apostle. Today we observe the Lord’s calling of Peter to his people-fishing mission. It starts with the simple logistic of Jesus borrowing Peter’s boat to serve as a ‘pulpit’. But it continues with Jesus shaping Peter for a mission of fishing for people, through learning to trust Jesus’ authoritative word, and learning that Jesus uses even very frail people, sinners such as himself.
