Message 335 / TEXT: John 21:4-11

Charles Spurgeon said, "Christ's presence, if He would but come among us in the fullness of His strength, would do so much more for us than anything that we have ever seen that we would be just as astounded by the increase as the apostles were by the great draught of fishes. Christ had but to will it, and the fish came swimming in shoals to the net, and he has but to will it, and souls will be converted by millions to Himself and His gospel."

In our last message, we saw that Peter, John, and five of their fellow disciples decided to go fishing while they were waiting for Jesus to come to them in Galilee. This was not necessarily a shameful or sinful action in that they were not abandoning Jesus or the ministry. It was most likely simply one of necessity. Unfortunately, the disciples fished all night and did not catch one fish. When a Man appears on the shore and tells them to cast the net on the other side of the boat, they do so, and they haul in a marvelous catch. What can we learn from the aftermath of this miracle?
