Thoughts on Faith

Run to Jesus

“That disciple whom Jesus loved therefore said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord he put on his outer garment for he was stripped for work, and threw himself into the sea.” – John 21:7, ESV

After Jesus’ death he appeared to the disciples. In this verse we see how Peter reacted to seeing Christ again. He threw himself into the sea to get to Jesus as fast as possible.

I think this is a great picture of how I need to react towards Christ. I need to be ready to fling myself into His open arms. My love for Him should match that of Peter’s.
