Stained - Windows into our Heritage: Stained by Inadequacy



Stained by Inadequacy Luke 5:4-11 Peter was a professional fisherman. But even a professional has an off day from time to time. He has been fishing all night and hasn’t caught a thing. Jesus tells Peter to put his nets down on the other side of his boat. When he does, and when he catches a miraculous number of fish, Peter responds with deep a sense of anxious inadequacy: “Go away from me, Lord; I am a sinful man” (verse 8)! Do you every feel inadequate? Addictions, guilt, and even other people can all make us feel inadequate. Praise be to God that Christ makes us not only adequate, but abundant!
