  2. DIRTY NETS & STINKY FISH

  3. One day as Jesus was walking along the shore of

    the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers—Simon, also called Peter, and Andrew—throwing a net into the water, for they fished for a living. Jesus called out to them, “Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!” And they left their nets at once and followed him. Matthew 4:18–20 (NLT)
  4. One day as Jesus was walking along the shore of

    the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew throwing a net into the water, for they fished for a living. Jesus called out to them, “Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!” And they left their nets at once and followed him. Mark 1:16–18 (NLT)
  5. Jesus and his companions went to the town of Capernaum.

    When the Sabbath day came, he went into the synagogue and began to teach. The people were amazed at his teaching, for he taught with real authority—quite unlike the teachers of religious law. Suddenly, a man in the synagogue who was possessed by an evil spirit cried out, “Why are you interfering with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of God!” Mark 1:21–26 (NLT)
  6. But Jesus reprimanded him. “Be quiet! Come out of the

    man,” he ordered. At that, the evil spirit screamed, threw the man into a convulsion, and then came out of him. Mark 1:21–26 (NLT)
  7. After Jesus left the synagogue with James and John, they

    went to Simon and Andrew’s home. Now Simon’s mother-in-law was sick in bed with a high fever. They told Jesus about her right away. So he went to her bedside, took her by the hand, and helped her sit up. Then the fever left her, and she prepared a meal for them. Mark 1:29–31 (NLT)
  8. Then Jesus went to Capernaum, a town in Galilee, and

    taught there in the synagogue every Sabbath day. There, too, the people were amazed at his teaching, for he spoke with authority. Once when he was in the synagogue, a man possessed by a demon— an evil spirit—cried out, shouting, “Go away! Why are you interfering with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of God!” Luke 4:31–39 (NLT)
  9. But Jesus reprimanded him. “Be quiet! Come out of the

    man,” he ordered. At that, the demon threw the man to the floor as the crowd watched; then it came out of him without hurting him further. Amazed, the people exclaimed, “What authority and power this man’s words possess! Even evil spirits obey him, and they flee at his command!” The news about Jesus spread through every village in the entire region. Luke 4:31–39 (NLT)
  10. Jesus Heals Many People After leaving the synagogue that day,

    Jesus went to Simon’s home, where he found Simon’s mother-in-law very sick with a high fever. “Please heal her,” everyone begged. Standing at her bedside, he rebuked the fever, and it left her. And she got up at once and prepared a meal for them. Luke 4:31–39 (NLT)
  11. One day as Jesus was preaching on the shore of

    the Sea of Galilee, a great crowd pressed in on him to listen to the word of God. He noticed two empty boats at the water’s edge, for the fishermen had left them and were washing their nets. Stepping into one of the boats, Jesus asked Simon, its owner, to push it out into the water. So he sat in the boat and taught the crowds from there. Luke 5:1–3 (NLT)
  12. When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Now

    go out where it is deeper, and let down your nets to catch some fish.” “Master,” Simon replied, “we worked hard all last night and didn’t catch a thing. But if you say so, I’ll let the nets down again.” And this time their nets were so full of fish they began to tear! A shout for help brought their partners in the other boat, and soon both boats were filled with fish and on the verge of sinking. Luke 5:4–11 (NLT)
  13. When Simon Peter realised what had happened, he fell to

    his knees before Jesus and said, “Oh, Lord, please leave me—I’m such a sinful man.” For he was awestruck by the number of fish they had caught, as were the others with him. His partners, James and John, the sons of Zebedee, were also amazed. Jesus replied to Simon, “Don’t be afraid! From now on you’ll be fishing for people!” And as soon as they landed, they left everything and followed Jesus. Luke 5:4–11 (NLT)
  14. And as soon as they landed, they left everything and

    followed Jesus. Luke 5:11 (NLT)
  15. A large crowd was following Jesus. He turned around and

    said to them, “If you want to be my disciple, you must, by comparison, hate everyone else—your father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even your own life. Otherwise, you cannot be my disciple. And if you do not carry your own cross and follow me, you cannot be my disciple. Luke 14:25–27 (NLT)
  16. So you cannot become my disciple without giving up everything

    you own. Luke 14:33 (NLT)
  17. The following day John was again standing with two of

    his disciples. As Jesus walked by, John looked at him and declared, “Look! There is the Lamb of God!” When John’s two disciples heard this, they followed Jesus. Jesus looked around and saw them following. “What do you want?” he asked them. John 1:35–42 (NLT)
  18. They replied, “Rabbi” (which means “Teacher”), “where are you staying?”

    “Come and see,” he said. It was about four o’clock in the afternoon when they went with him to the place where he was staying, and they remained with him the rest of the day. John 1:35–42 (NLT)
  19. Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, was one of these men who

    heard what John said and then followed Jesus. Andrew went to find his brother, Simon, and told him, “We have found the Messiah” (which means “Christ”m). Then Andrew brought Simon to meet Jesus. Looking intently at Simon, Jesus said, “Your name is Simon, son of John—but you will be called Cephas” (which means “Peter”). John 1:35–42 (NLT)

  21. Later, Jesus appeared again to the disciples beside the Sea

    of Galilee.a This is how it happened. Several of the disciples were there—Simon Peter, Thomas (nicknamed the Twin),b Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two other disciples. Simon Peter said, “I’m going fishing.” John 21:1–7 (NLT)
  22. “We’ll come, too,” they all said. So they went out

    in the boat, but they caught nothing all night. At dawn Jesus was standing on the beach, but the disciples couldn’t see who he was. He called out, “Fellows, have you caught any fish?” “No,” they replied. John 21:1–7 (NLT)
  23. Then he said, “Throw out your net on the right-hand

    side of the boat, and you’ll get some!” So they did, and they couldn’t haul in the net because there were so many fish in it. Then the disciple Jesus loved said to Peter, “It’s the Lord!” John 21:1–7 (NLT)
  24. “Follow me.” John 21:19 (NLT)
