The Miraculous Catch (Luke 5:1-11)
Sunday with your kids
Lesson summary: When Jesus called the disciples with power, they could not resist.
In our bible story we learned:
1. The amazing catch revealed the power of God at work in Christ.
2. The disciples left everything to follow the Greatest Treasure.
Where is the Gospel?
How does today's Bible story fit into God's greater plan of redemption?
Luke 19:10 says that Jesus came to seek and to save the lost. In our story today, Jesus seeks out a man named Peter and a few of his fishing companions and calls them to join him in his mission to reach the world. Though they were accustomed to netting fish, Jesus told them they were called to catch men (Luke 5:10). Like Peter, whom the Lord did not condemn for his sin, they would join Jesus in calling others. The picture of the nets, bursting with fish, depicts the kingdom of God. Through his death on the cross, Jesus would call men from every tribe, language, and nation. This catching of men would only be possible through the grace of God available through Jesus’ death on the cross and his resurrection.
