Cast Your Net John 21:1-14One week after the Saviors’ resurrection the Apostles returned to Sea of Tiberias to fish, because that was what they knew. They spent the entire night casting their nets into the water with no success.Then as the morning sun broke through the clouds they saw a figure on the distant shore and heard the voice suggesting they should cast their nets to the other side of the boat.Like the Apostles that morning, we too must choose. Choose to routinely continue in our own way, paying no attention to the Savior’s voice; too involved in life. Satisfied to keep our head down and continue to fish. Or perhaps, we act like the Apostle at the front of the boat and we stretch as far out as we can to hear the voice of the Master, to listen and to follow.Have you ever wondered how often in your life the Savior has been on the shore calling to you? How did you respond?
As the day ends and the sun sets on the final day of Christ’s life, he chose to move forward with the most excruciating experience ever endured.The law required he shoulder alone the great conflict between the will of the mind and the physical limits of the body. Choosing to remain focused on his ultimate joy of preparing the way whereby we may return and live with him.Knowing there was no other way, and acting as the ultimate example, he submitted his will completely to the will of our Father in Heaven.
