John 21

“So they cast it, and now they were not able to haul it in, because of the quantity of fish” (v6).  Jesus’ last appearance gave his followers a new mission and showed them how they would accomplish it.   By faith in Jesus, the tired fishermen caught a boat-load of fish yet “their nets were not torn” (v11).  By faith, they ate with their resurrected Savior.  By faith, Peter reaffirmed his love for Jesus and accepted his new task to shepherd the sheep. 

“Jesus came and took the bread and gave it to them” (v13).  We can do nothing for Jesus or in his name unless we receive him and know him, our bread of life and living water.
