Go Ye Therefore

The Law of Buy-In Part 9

 Jesus Builds Team-Luke 5:1-11

The Law of Buy-In reminds us that people buy in to the leader before they buy in to the vision of that leader. Jesus directed three seasoned fishermen to let down their nets in a certain part of the lake in order to get a catch. Peter responded that they had fished hard all night, without catching anything. Yet he gave Jesus’ word higher authority than his own experience.

This is crucial. Jesus’ leadership drew a buy-in from professionals who felt certain they knew the fishing business better than He did. When Jesus’ directions proved fruitful, they became willing to follow Him anywhere. Even before they understood all the places they would be going, they left everything to follow Him.
