Today everyone just wants to get back to normal. Really?
I don’t want to go back. I’m looking forward, forward to better than normal, forward to more than normal!
Simon Peter had a decent normal, fishing for a living.
Then Simon Peter had a rough 24 hours:
- Argued with Jesus about washing his feet, John 13:6-8
- Argued again with Jesus about supporting Him, Matthew 26:31-35
- Cut off a guy’s ear, John 18:10-11
- Abandoned Jesus, Matthew 26:56
- Denied Jesus three times, Matthew 26:69-75
And now? He decides to go fishing, all the way back to his old, comfortable normal. John 21:3
So what did Jesus do about it? John 21:15-17
Jesus gave him his new normal! The most awesome normal Simon Peter ever had!
It isn’t over! It may just be beginning!
Whatever you’re dealing with, this could be the open door to the most awesome normal you have ever had!
