Day 21

In our final devotion from 21 Days in John, we take time to ponder and picture the scene in John 21:1-14.

In this section brimming with symbolism, Jesus appears to 7 disciples on the banks of the Sea of Tiberias.

These disciples, called to be fishers of men, are working in the dark without results. Only by listening to Jesus’ guidance on where to cast their nets are these men successful with their catch. This episode symbolizes the mission of the Church – to be fishers of men and women. As Jesus said earlier, “He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing” (15:5, NKJV).

The second symbolic event is the fellowship with Jesus. Once on shore, Jesus cooks the 7 men a meal. This gesture is more than feeding hungry fishermen; rather, this is a time where Jesus provides for them, physically and spiritually. Likewise, it is only through Jesus’ feeding and fellowship are we, the Church, able to go out into the world and fish.

I throughly enjoyed and received such a blessing following Dr Collin’s 21 Days in the Gospel of John. Does or will he have the same process for the book of Revelation we can listen to?
