John 21:1 After this Jesus revealed himself again to the disciples by the Sea of Tiberias. Now this is how he did so. 

We don’t know how much time elapsed after the disciples arrived in Galilee. They didn’t know what they should do so they returned to their past pursuits.  They went fishing.  Many times we don’t know what to do next so we return to a familiar task.  They fished all night like they use to do but nothing happened.  As morning dawned someone on the shore called out to them asking how it was going and suggested they cast their net on the other side of the boat.  To be polite they did.  They caught more fish then they could handle and realized that person on the shore was Jesus.  They couldn’t do the way they did before because they weren’t the same people they were before they met Jesus.  We’re not the same after we encounter Jesus.  We think differently, do differently, hopefully talk differently and have different priorities than we had before our encounter with Jesus.  Our question is are we trying to be the same person we once were or are we allowing God to make us “new creatures” in Him?
