It is the Lord. John 21:7
The disappointed disciples caught nothing in their initial fishing outing. Then they saw a man standing on the shore. He called out to them, “Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find” (John 21:6). They obeyed and caught a multitude of fish. When the disciples saw this miracle, it was John who recognised the Lord and said to Peter, “It is the Lord.” Do we need miracles to recognise the Lord? Every breath of fresh air we breathe in, every step we take, every heart beat that pumps the blood through our body is a miracle. The Lord manifests Himself to us every moment. May we recognize His goodness and grace to us today and honour Him as the Lord. —K. C. Ung
’Tis the Lord! O wondrous story! ’Tis the Lord! The King of glory!
At His feet we humbly fall. Crown Him! Crown Him, Lord of all!
—Benjamin R. Hanby
