The Appearance to the Seven Disciples

John 21:1-14

Seven disciples are present for Jesus’ third appearance. They fish without him, and it is futile. Once Jesus appears on the shore, they cast their nets again to bring in a plentiful catch. Again, John, the beloved disciple, is the first to recognize Jesus, who serves them a meal. Jesus’ actions teach them to trust and to serve.

Prayer: Jesus, this day and all days I will be mindful of your presence before, beside, and within me.
