Gone Fishing? | A Sermon on Luke 5:1-11 | the Great Catch of Fish | Epiphany 4

Listen to the sermon audio

Text: Luke 5:1-11 and Isaiah 6:1-8

There is no manuscript to read for this sermon because I never wrote one. There was a huge funeral in the week leading up to this sermon so I did not have a chance to write it out. It was plotted out fairly well in my head, but you can only to listen to it.

The gist of the sermon is that Jesus entered into Simon’s home (Luke 4:38) and into his workplace (Luke 5:1-11) and performed miracles. Simon had an “Isaiah 6” epiphany and was transformed in his self image and his sense of vocation. His response was to “leave everything” to follow Jesus. That same transformation of vocation calls to each of us today. Jesus calls us to bring the Kingdom of God into the homes and workplaces of ordinary people and let God transform them.
