Church 6/20/04

"He had nets to mend."
Rich Mullins, Everyman

Preached from John chapter 21 where Peter, Thomas, Nathanael, James, John, and two unnamed disciples return to fishing even after having seen the risen saviour twice already. Peter could not stay away from the fishing business. Jesus finally settles the issue here but even so it took the baptism of the Holy Spirit in Acts to convince Peter that he had to walk away from his secular pursuits and obey the words of Jesus, "feed my lambs, feed my sheep".
