Marks of a Disciple // Marked by Renewal

John 21:1-8

Set scene – from Jerusalem to Galilee.

Seasons of a disciple when it comes to the call of Jesus: Abandoned, Uncertain, Necessities of life, Helpless on your own.

The story of the disciples does not “read like the lives of men on a Spirit-empowered mission. . . . There is neither the joy nor the assurance, not to mention the sense of mission and the spirit of unity, that characterize the church when freshly endowed with the promised Spirit.”

D.A. Carson, The Gospel According to John

1. By His power in our helplessness (John 21:1-14)

Original Call of the Disciples and the Miracle of catching fish: Luke 5:1-11

Luke 5:5: And Simon answered, “Master, we toiled all night and took nothing! But at your word I will let down the nets.”
