Just a few days before, Peter denied even knowing Jesus. Now we find him preaching and healing in His name. Not only does he claim to know Christ, but he stands boldly in front of the high priests and proclaims there is no other name under heaven by which we are saved.
One more thing: Anyone who has been up all night with a fussy baby or a late teenager can imagine the frustration Peter and the others felt at being up all night without a catch. Just when they wanted to go home and get in bed, Jesus asks them to cast their nets one more time. Ugh! They obeyed and were rewarded with an amazing catch. Do you ever feel at the end of your rope and then you hear, "Mom, can you...?" Take a minute and imagine Jesus asking you to cast your net one more time for Him as you tend to your child.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, Help me to remember as I live my vocation of motherhood that I do this for you. Be there with me after sleepless nights and refresh me as you did the disciples on the beach. In your name I pray. Amen.
