Key Verse

“Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing.” John 21:3

Text — John 21:1-6


After Christ’s death, burial and resurrection, the disciples were left confused. They were not sure what would become of their faith and commitment to Jesus Christ, their Master and Lord. They also did not know what to do next.

One day, Peter announced that he was going out to fish. Other disciples then decided to follow him to the sea of Tiberias to go and fish. They were at the sea all night but caught nothing.

Suddenly, the Lord appeared on the scene. Jesus is a loving, compassionate Saviour. He came just at the right time to give them direction to where the fishes were. It is important to wait patiently for the Lord to receive guidance in everything we do.

Jesus lovingly proved to Peter that his calling was not only to fish for daily bread, but to fish for sinners. When Jesus called them the first time, He said, “Follow me and I will make you fishers of men.” This is what Christ is calling His friends to do today. While studying and preparing for your future, remember to also fish for sinners. Tell them of the love of Christ and show them how to trust and serve the Lord. This is the most rewardable service on earth.
