Full disclosure, I am not much of a fisherman. I just don’t have the patience to go out on a lake all day and maybe not catch anything. I guess I’m too results driven for it to work, I’m not good at just “enjoying the experience” regardless of the outcome.
Jesus wasn’t a fisherman either, by trade at least, but he sure spent a lot of time with fishermen. His inner circle were all fishermen. Six of the twelve disciples had that profession. Some of the most memorable miracles and moments in the Gospels dealt with fish or fishing.
This month we’re going to take a look at some of the Gospels’ most memorable “fish stories.” My hope is that stories will point us toward significant truths about who Jesus was, what it means to follow him, and what full participation in the Kingdom of God looks like.
