Jesus makes it really is what Dr. Tony Evans explained why we need to be willing to move beyond the comfortable. This is the alternative Dr. Tony speaker Pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas Texas and president of the God loves to amaze his children, but Dr. Evan says we may sometimes prevent that from happening by either expecting too little or knowing too much. Let's join him as he explains she incorporates with James and John the son fishing's where this story is laid out in the first 11 verses five Jesus Christ centering on the centerpiece of the lesson he wants us to learn to get a few people I'm sure the people he would speak to the people from the boat teaching the people giving the Sunday sermon. If you will. The lesson for the day introduces what happened an opportunity for application formation is not enough speaking let's us know now your next catch answered and said with all why that's when fishermen we caught nothing but process. Because you let down the minutes first read you might think you're reading this because nothing trust what is really saying what is really saying is Jason's doing this for long time and last night, Jesus will you you see this may not believe what you wanted to mess with no you and you face the challenges of life day by day you are going to think so. J you just preach live in a relationship. Just let me run my life as I know what I'm doing. Verse six says that this enclosed a great brachial next number of fish caught the break. I have met one fish.

They got next to Dragon fish when you really only fish in the shallow box began to break now begin the break since only verse seven says they begins to sink. Talk about seeing God move talk about blowing your mind.

Talk about breakthrough talk about seeing more than you expected.

This is what say you got more than he bargained, you will face this in the room where you make a decision on that when it goes against what they will think have experienced and successful for me and I'll spell that makes some would say blind faith just because somebody tells you with your experience tells you that's not the way to go.

That's blonde day. It's not a blind faith. When you know the person telling can pull off anything he instructed something from all know more than we really know what you think you know some so what just happened. Jesus is all amazement had gripped his companion because of the Jesus knew what he was talking about, the shock talk about conflict religious figure of a great man. He saw his most of us would want to with all his mistakes in the Bible to greatly.

I can see you and me now on the Sea of Galilee. There, let's count 101, 100 to see we got 5000.

They go for each.

Now we don't get a lot of thousand taking his pads, but have we would be counting each week with all the wound site. Now have less what just happened tells me much more about the effect it tells me much more about me. I thought I was ace.

Fishermen Paul Axel in the face of Jesus Christ said when God comes through. If you cannot get this look at the blast. Also breakthrough when I went back wants to read the blast you saw that you understand believe just a little bit in a little bit says the part somebody got believe because I am a sinful man to share God's will surprise the punching not right but you were trying and she is but but but but is now anyway so just because you know you want, but the danger will be that you say that you thought of me.

Tony ever seen parents taking pictures of toddlers when they first get the walk site when you would think somebody landed on the moon, but we always bundled when they are amazed that the first steps always on the knees with when God leads you to chew me with this thing. It would be nice story in the right think we got great lesson that God wants to amaze you, not merely so that you can enjoy the blessing God wants to major issues so that you look at him differently.

I got a curveball a pro at would be me about it have a curveball that would verses 10 and 11 and so James and John, son of Simon and Jesus said to Simon. Do not fear no.

You will be catching men and women. They have brought their boats to land they left everything and followed. Obviously, I just read that the obviously obviously I'm reading too fast to limit slowdown. The reverse 11 word by word and think about an appointment when they had their boats to land they left everything I can hear some of God's blessing and you take him somewhere separately.

It's the Boston because he wanted to change the count you count so soon so that you can look at differently because you are going somewhere's the real you want coming got up in you so that you are now in good stand of the mission you play 25% of Jesus.the big man man want that you want you can have all this to me.

We will include you in our program so we can so that you bring in the world THAT you not catch fish. Jesus makes it clear that you what you could be happy with may have some way.

The day God wants to amaze. So good to see him. Please notice everything and follow him. Please notice brothers and sisters" there are no details of say we will go ABCD so they can evaluate no wiggle walk by faith on this one gentleman but hopefully what I showed you with the fish, will let you know I know what I'm doing, where I'm going this going before you share every walk of a blind girl one day, was caught in a fire. She's blind and got five filed on the 10th floor.

The building she can make a way to the window, but you can see nothing. She smelled smoke feels the hot fire fireman's job job say the rest. Job.

Job 10 stories you can't see the midst of chaos and confusion. Another voice, John. She smiled causes you, chill Jesus Christ. I know you just jump just job just want to with what he can do me.

Prayer can be a pleasure as we enjoy the closeness it gives us with God tomorrow. Dr. Evans will tell us how to take our prayers to the next level, a level that's much more effective but much less comfortable right now though Tony's back with this closing invitation for you. You're not a Christian because religious or because you go to church because you believe in God, your Christian because you accepted Jesus Christ as your personal sin bearer being religious. Doing good works. That's nice but it's not sufficient when God demands perfection.

Second Corinthians 521 says he who knew no sin became sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in him. So what God has said is he placed your sin on the cross on the Christ and then judge Christ for your sin if you will go to Christ.

He will take Christ righteousness which is perfect and he will credited to your account so you will stand before God never sent my because your simplest sentence credit on your account with you will receive Jesus Christ right now if you will invite him into your life believing that he died for you and roles for you personally. He will credit your account with perfection is already credited to go to Christ right now. Gift of salvation offered all the alternative Dr. Tony is made possible by the generous, you should
