"Nevertheless at Your Word!" (1 Corinthians 15:1-11, Luke 5:1-11)

Rev. Dr. Marjorie E. NunesRev. Dr. Marjorie E. Nunes, February 10, 2019
Part of the Sunday after Epiphany series, preached at a Sunday service

The King James reading of Luke 5:5 reads: “Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.” Nevertheless: in spite of that; notwithstanding; all the same. What is the difference between however and nevertheless? Both these sentences highlight a contrast, they mean 'despite this' or 'despite what has just been stated'. Here's the main difference between the two words: nevertheless is a little more formal and emphatic (e.g., surprising) than however. Nevertheless is also not used as often as however. Have you ever had a nevertheless moment?
