Become His new creation!

5:38 Luke “No, new wine must be poured into new wineskins.” (NIV)

Jesus responds to the religious leaders when they think that the disciples are not ‘religious enough’. Jesus reminds them that you do not take new cloth to patch old clothes… or you do not put new wine into old wineskins. Jesus is the fulfillment of the law… He is the one that sets us free… free from sin and death. We need to become the new creations that He has meant for us to be. We are to show His love to one another… and NOW is a great time for us to do just that!

Leave everything else behind!

5:11 Luke “So they pulled their boats up on shore, left everything and followed him.” (NIV)

Peter and the other fishermen knew that this Jesus was someone that they must follow. They left EVERYTHING and began to follow Him. That is sacrifice. That is commitment. That is being a follower of Jesus. They KNEW it was the right decision. They KNEW He could care for them… even if they did not know HOW. That is faith… trusting in God for all aspects of your life… now and eternally!

Prepare for a catch!

5:04 Luke “When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, "Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch."” (NIV)

Jesus was teaching near the shore but as the people crowded around Him, he stepped into a boat to finish His teaching. When He was done, He spoke to Simon Peter and asked Him to push out into deep waters and to put down His nets. Jesus often asks us to do things we don’t understand…even going into deep waters… He is with us. So, today, don’t be afraid to put out you nets (to your social network) and help bring in new believers.
