Doing Things God’s Way

Description

When you follow Jesus' instructions, you are successful and satisfied!

He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing (John 15:5, NKJV).

After following Jesus’ instructions to throw their nets on the other side of the boat, the disciples hauled in a huge catch of fish. Back on the beach, He invited them to “come and have breakfast” (John 21:12, NIV). With furtive glances and downcast faces, “none of the disciples dared ask him, ‘Who are you?’” (John 21:12, NIV). They knew. And on that early spring morning beside the sparkling sea, Jesus took the bread and fish from the fire and fed His disciples breakfast! They feasted and were satisfied, not only by the food He had provided, but also by the fish they had caught.

Jesus was teaching them an important life lesson. They had been out in the boat, apparently trying to meet their own needs, doing what they were naturally good at, but basically living their lives without Him. And they had come up empty. Unfulfilled. But when He was in their lives, and they obeyed His Word, and they served Him in His way, not only were they successful, but they were also satisfied!
