Chapter-a-Day John 21

SwimWhen Simon Peter realized that it was the Master, he threw on some clothes, for he was stripped for work, and dove into the sea. John 21:7b (TM)

When Peter realized that the resurrected Jesus was there before him, his immediate reaction was to be with him. He couldn’t wait to be with Jesus – even if that meant diving head-long into the Sea and swimming to shore.

How anxious am I to be with the Master? Am I so anxious to be present with Jesus? I admire Peter’s spirit. Loaded down with the tasks and cares of my every day labor, I think I’m more like the others who take their time finishing things up so I can row to shore. I want to have Peter’s heart – desiring, above all else, to be with God as quickly and as much as I possibly can.

One thought on “Chapter-a-Day John 21”

  1. 25There are so many other things Jesus did. If they were all written down, each of them, one by one, I can’t imagine a world big enough to hold such a library of books.
    The stories of Jesus in the Bible are amazing acts of miracle, healing and sacrifice. This statement hit me square in the head this morning. Our Lord is so much greater and bigger than we can imagine. Sometimes I wish I could have lived during that time to be part of it, yet we have the opportunity to commune with this same God. Absolutely amazing!
