“So Simon Peter climbed back into the boat and dragged the net ashore. It was full of large fish, 153, but even with so many the net was not torn.” John 21:11
What’s so special about that verse? At first glance, it doesn’t seem like much. In fact, I’ve read over that verse so many times in the past. Yet this morning, God really spoke to me through it.
At church this morning, the pastor was preaching on this passage. He mentioned the verse, mentioned that there’s speculation as to what the number of fish means, admitted he doesn’t know, then he moved on.
But I didn’t.
Amidst the message, God impressed some things upon me. See, I’ve been visiting churches, looking for a church home, which can make you feel a little invisible and lost. I was sitting in this sanctuary, surrounded by strangers, and feeling like just another face in the crowd.
And in the midst of that, God told me that I am one of those fish.
