Here’s a great fishing story from Chuck Swindoll that helps us understand Peter’s experience in John 21 a little better.
Through the three years the disciples learned from Jesus they watched Him calm storms, walk on water, and confront the religious establishment…all while casting His saving net into humanity’s sea.
Chuck Swindoll teaches the importance of following Jesus as diligent disciples. You will learn some valuable lessons from the story of Peter, who took his eyes off Jesus.
In this final message of this series from John’s gospel, Chuck Swindoll concludes with some powerful lessons about the impact of Jesus’ miraculous life and ministry on earth.
Many fall prey to the temptation of attending church only on those high Christian holidays such as Christmas and, of course, Easter. Sitting in the congregation only once or twice a year, a visitor might wonder just what all the hubbub is about.

For most people, that’s probably right, because the life of faith brings change, not through occasionally dropping in on God but through regular commitment across weeks and weeks of seemingly little change.
