Icebreaker: Have you ever had a great experience being part of a team? What was it like?
- Read Luke 5:1-4. Put yourself in Simon-Peter’s situation. What would you be thinking or doing? How would you have responded to Jesus?
- Read Luke 5:5-11. How did Peter respond to this miracle catch of fish? How did his response compare to the miracle when Jesus healed his mother-in-law (Luke 4:38-39)? What did Peter believe about Jesus?
- Read Luke 5:27-32. Tax collectors were despised as the most sinful in their society. What might be a modern-day equivalent of this kind of person? Why did Jesus choose to eat with tax collectors? How do you think Simon-Peter and his friends felt about that choice? What can we do to model our lives after Jesus in this kind of situation?
- How can we pray for each other?
