Summary: When we Leave the presence of Jesus we return to our Default Settings

John 21:2-7

2 Several of the disciples were there—Simon Peter, Thomas (nicknamed the Twin),[a] Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two other disciples 3 Simon Peter said, “I’m going fishing.”“We’ll come, too,” they all said. So they went out in the boat, but they caught nothing all night.4 At dawn Jesus was standing on the beach, but the disciples couldn’t see who he was. 5 He called out, “Fellows,[b] have you caught any fish?”“No,” they replied.6 Then he said, “Throw out your net on the right-hand side of the boat, and you’ll get some!” So they did, and they couldn’t haul in the net because there were so many fish in it7 Then the disciple Jesus loved said to Peter, “It’s the Lord!” When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his tunic (for he had stripped for work), jumped into the water, and headed to shore.

1. Out of the presence of Jesus we go back to our default

a. Peter knew the story of Jesus was true,

b. Default settings; sometimes that is sin

c. Sometimes our default settings our right into our comfort zone

2. When we hear His voice we listen we are blessed

a. Jesus still blesses even when we don’t recognize Him

b. His voice, my sheep know my voice and another they will not follow

3. But when we see Jesus in the distance we run to Him

a. Once you have been in the presence of Jesus, no matter how far you have gone away

Altar: 1. Maybe you are here and you have never accepted Jesus 2. Maybe you have gone back to default 3. Maybe this morning you need to hear His voice 4. Maybe you need to run to him
