INTRODUCTION

A. 1621 THE SPANISH GALLEON, “THE
ATOCIA” SANK OFF THE COST OF KEY
WEST, FLORIDA. FOR OVER 350 YEARS
THIS SHIP WITH ITS CARGO OF GOLD,
SILVER BARS, AND ARTIFACTS LAY ON
THE OCEAN FLOOR. ALTHOUGH MANY
HAD SEARCHED FOR IT NONE HAD FOUND
IT. IN THE MID 80'S AN ADVENTURER
NAMED MEL FISHER SET OUT TO LOCATE
THE ATTOCIA. THE 15 YEAR JOURNEY
WAS COSTLY, FRUSTRATING, TRAGIC AT
TIMES AND SEEMINGLY IMPOSSIBLE. BUT
FISHER REFUSED TO GIVE UP. HIS MOTTO
WAS “TODAY IS THE DAY.” MEL FISHER
FOUND THE ATTOCIA WITH OVER $400
MILLION IN TREASURES.

B. THERE IS A GREATER TREASURE OUT
THERE. THIS TREASURE IS PEOPLE WHO

CHRIST THE PROFITS ARE ETERNAL IN
THEIR LIVES AND OURS.


D. AS WE FOCUS ON THE WORTH OF OUR

KINDS OF PEOPLE CHRIST CHANGES BY

1. THESE FOLKS ARE REPRESENTED
BY ONE MAN’S LIFE.

2. THIS MAN IS SIMON PETER.

WOULD LIKE.

2. HE WAS BOISTROUS AND
TALKATIVE AND, I BELIEVE FUN
LOVING

3. HE WAS IMPULSIVE. WHEN HE
SUCCEEDED IT WAS BIG. WHEN HE
FAILED IT WAS BIG AS WELL.

F. SIMON REPRESENTS PEOPLE HERE TODAY
AND PEOPLE THAT WERE BROUGHT TO
CHRIST AT STARLIGHT.

I. THE WINNABLE. JOHN 1:41,42

A. ANDREW DID WHAT MANY OF YOU DID
THIS PAST WEEK.

1. HE BROUGHT PETER TO JESUS AND
JESUS TO PETER.

2. HE FELT PETER WAS WINNABLE.


3. WHO DO YOU KNOW THAT’S
WINNABLE?

B. JESUS SEES YOU FOR WHAT YOU ARE.

1. HE “LOOKED AT HIM...”

2. THE WORD MEANS HE LOOKED
BENEATH THE SURFACE.

3. HE SEES ...
