REFLECT AND PRAY
Jesus’ return from death stimulates the hearts of his disciples. They are rejuvenated by Christ’s resurrection.
There are two scenes in John where the disciples fish with Jesus. The first (John 1:35-42) shows the amazement of ordinary men at an extraordinary man named Jesus. If we compare the first fishing scene to the one in John 21, we can see that the disciples have grown in faith and been transformed by their relationship with Christ.
1) What are some ways you have grown in Christ during this season of life?
In both fishing scenes, Jesus calls his disciples to follow him. How is Jesus calling Peter to serve? How is God calling you to serve today? As he speaks to you, answer with a “yes.”
