Sermon Title: “If You Say So” – Hanna Bingham Preaching
Synopsis: Peter is a fisherman. He knows his trade. He had fished all night, but caught nothing. Can you imagine how Peter was feeling? Then, Jesus told Peter to take the boat out a little ways from shore and cast out his nets. Jesus was a carpenter’s son. What did he know about fishing? Can you imagine the struggle going on inside Peter at this strange request? Peter, however, decided to follow Jesus even though it seemed worthless, crazy, a waste of time. He was shocked at what happened. Do we open ourselves to being shocked by the ways of God?
