SUMMARY: In Luke Chapter 5, the well-known passage of the miraculous catch, Jesus experiences a need as he tries to communicate with the multitude. He sees two boats owned by fishermen and asks to use one as a platform to speak from. This shows that the Lord needs our lives and resources to fulfill his purposes, just as he needed Peter's boat. We should yield ourselves to the Lord and say, "Father, all of my gifts, all of my properties, all that I have is yours, dispose of it as you will. I will merely depend on your grace for my daily needs." We should practice giving as a discipline and have a worry-free generosity, trusting in the Lord's promise of provision. As a church, we should be generous and not be so concerned about our physical plant and money, but instead, open up holes in our walls to let the blessing blow in and out.

This sermon is about the story of Peter and Jesus, where Jesus asks to use Peter's boat to preach and later asks him to cast his net, resulting in a huge catch of fish. The sermon emphasizes the importance of generosity and obedience to God's commands. When we give to the Lord, we are blessed materially, but more importantly, we are elevated spiritually and grow in faith and relationship with Him. The sermon encourages listeners to trust in God's faithfulness and to live a life of sacrifice and service. The speaker also prays for victory and provision for the church.

Let’s go to Luke Chapter 5, the well known passage of the miraculous catch. If you have the bibles with you in English, please follow along and I’ll also try to integrate some of the text as I preach.

Lord we commit this word to You from whom it comes and we ask that you would touch our lives, the totality of our being, that you would speak to us this morning through your word. Edify us Lord, build us up in our faith. Let us see your generous style of dealing with those who love you and obey you. In Jesus’ name. Amen
