Like It Was Yesterday

What are things or events you remember like it was yesterday? In the post-resurrection story narrated in the 21st chapter of the Gospel of John, we read the disciples' encounter with Jesus. (See, John 21:1-19.) They remember it so well that the writer mentions the number of fish that they caught that same day. Verses 11-12 say: “Simon Peter went aboard and dragged the net to the shore. There were 153 large fish, and yet the net hadn’t torn ‘Now come and have some breakfast!’ Jesus said.” Their fellowship with Jesus did not just end with this breakfast. It continued on to more teaching and reminders about Jesus’ love (Jn. 21:16). They all remember Jesus’ words like it was yesterday.

How is your life with Jesus? Do you have fresh revelation from our Lord every morning? Can you say with the disciples “our hearts burn within us as he talked with us on the road?” (See, Luke 24:32). Do you remember your encounter with Jesus like it was yesterday?

He said, "Who are you, Master?" "I am Jesus, the One you're hunting down. I want you to get up and enter the city. In the city you'll be told what to do next." (Acts 9:5-6)
