Simon Peter: Flawed but Faithful Disciple -Summer Worship Series

Fishing Reluctantly in Deep Waters

Dr. Chris Carrasco
Jesus calls the fisherman, Simon, on the Sea of Galilee’s shoreline, asking him to "push into the deep water". Simon reluctantly agrees. The deep waters are the places we would rather not go, or have painful memories of from previous experiences. After witnessing the power of Jesus, Peter leaves everything he’s ever known to follow the call to catch or fish for people. "Fishing for people" would push them, and us, into the deep waters of a whole world filled with suffering and spiritual hunger.

Simon Peter: Flawed but Faithful Disciple -Summer Worship Series

He was not rich or educated, but was familiar with hard work. He was quick-tempered and impetuous, but possessed a passion that would change the world. He left everything to follow his teacher, yet struggled with doubt and fear. He was the first to profess Jesus as the Son of God, yet he later denied knowing him. Simon Peter is an ordinary fisherman who heard an extraordinary call. In this five week study based on Adam Hamilton’s book by the same name, we will study Peter’s life in-depth from his call as a fisherman through his death. Perhaps we will see ourselves in Simon Peter, the flawed but ultimately faithful follower of Jesus Christ.
