Jesus sought permission to enter and use the “vessel.”
Getting into one of the boats, which was Simon's, he asked him to put out a little from the land. (Luke 5:3)
Jesus then asks Peter to re-engage in the “toil.”
And Simon answered, “Master, we toiled all night and took nothing!” (Luke 5:5)
There’s not one boat big enough to handle what Jesus wants to do.
And when they had done this, they enclosed a large number of fish, and their nets were breaking. They signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink. (Luke 5:6-7)
Peter’s only response is to separate himself from Jesus. Why?
But when Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, “Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord.” (Luke 5:8)
Jesus took Peter on a short journey from scarcity to the supernatural.
And Jesus said to Simon, “Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching men.” And when they had brought their boats to land, they left everything and followed him. (Luke 5:10-11)
