Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” As soon as Simon Peter heard him say, “It is the Lord,” he wrapped his outer garment around him (for he had taken it off) and jumped into the water. John 21:7 (NIV)
Passage: John 21:1-19
Have you ever been overjoyed to see someone you care about that you hadn’t seen for a while or that you were seeing unexpectedly? It can be very exciting. We can be overcome with emotion and happiness at the sight of our loved one. May we look expectantly every day for the joy that comes from spending time with the Lord. May we be prepared to meet with Him each day. May the time spent with the Lord and the decision to follow Him more closely be our top priority. May the fellowship time spent with the Lord strengthen and sustain us throughout our day. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
