Summary: THE DISCIPLES WERE IN THE RIGHT PLACE FOR FISHING, BUT BECAUSE THAT IS NOT WHERE GOD COMMISSIONED THEM TO BE, IT WAS THE WRONG TIME. ARE YOU WHERE GOD WANTS YOU?

  Study Tools

SCRIPTURE: JOHN 21:1-3

SUBJECT: RIGHT PLACE, WRONG TIME

PATIENCE – VIRTUE

SLOTHFULNESS – SIN

CHALLENGE – BELIEVER . . . LEARN HOW TO DISCERN . . .

GOD WAITING ON YOU/I TO MAKE THE NEXT MOVE

VERSUS

YOU/I WAITING ON GOD TO MAKE THE NEXT MOVE

CRITICAL . . .

ABRAHAM AND SARAI . . .

HEBREW BOYS – FAITH - FIRE . . .

WHEN GOD IS WAITING ON US TO MOVE, IT BEHOOVES US NOT TO BE SLOTHFUL.

WHEN YOU/I ARE WAITING ON GOD, IT BEHOOVES US TO REMEMBER THAT MOMMA WAS RIGHT . . .

YOU CAN’T HURRY GOD . . .

HE MAY NOT COME . . .

LESSON- TEXT CHARACTER – LEARN.

BIBLE STUDENTS WILL RECALL THAT IN MATTHEW 28:7 . . .

JESUS – ANGEL – MARY & MARY M. – DISCIPLES – GALILEE

GALILEE

HOME OF NOBODY’S – SOMEBODY’S – RIGHT BODY

NOTHING HAPPENED – MEET THERE – SOMETHING. . . HAPPEN

IN THE MIDST OF YOUR NOTHINGNESS – SOMETHING, IF YOU BELIEVE . . .

JOHN PICKS UP THE STORY OF JESUS MEETING HIS DISCIPLES IN GALILEE, WHEN IN JOHN 20:19 . . .

JESUS – DISCIPLES . . .

JOHN 20:24 – THOMAS . . .

TEXT – TONIGHT . . .

SOME TIME HAS PASSED SINCE JESUS LAST REVEALED HIMSELF. APPARENTLY, SIMON PETER . . . JOHN 21:3 “I’M GOING FISHING.”

LEADER- DISCIPLES . . . THEY GOT INTO THE BOAT, FISHED . . . BUT CAUGHT NOTHING (2X).

1. YOU CANNOT MOVE FORWARD OPERATING OUTSIDE OF THE WILL OF GOD.

2. WHEN YOU’RE NOT IN THE RIGHT PLACE, YOU WILL NOT GET THE RIGHT RESULTS.

3. WHEN YOU WORK WITHOUT JESUS, YOUR WORK WILL BE WORTHLESS.

YOU CANNOT MOVE FORWARD OPERATING OUTSIDE OF THE WILL OF GOD. RATHER THAN BEING IN THE WILL OF GOD, PETER AND THE DISCIPLES FOLLOWED THEIR OWN WILL/DESIRE.

RATHER – WILL OF GOD . . .

RETURN TO THEIR PAST

RETURN TO THE BOAT

PAST LIFE

THAT WHICH WAS COMFORTABLE AND CONVENIENT . . .

WHEN YOU’RE NOT IN THE RIGHT PLACE, YOU WILL NOT GET THE RIGHT RESULTS. AS FISHERMEN PETER AND THE DISCIPLES KNEW FISH WERE EASIER TO CATCH AT NIGHT WHEN THE WATER WAS COOLER AND THE FISH SURFACED TO FEED. . .

WHEN YOU WORK WITHOUT JESUS, YOUR WORK WILL BE WORTHLESS.

ALL NIGHT LONG THEY WORKED – NO FRUIT OF THEIR LABOR

ALL NIGHT LONG THEY WORKED – DROPPED NETS – EMPTY NETS

All NIGHT LONG THEY WORKED – SWEAT FELL, ARMS ACHED, AND THE PROSPECT OF REELING IN A CATCH – DREAM.

ALL BECAUSE . . . THE WRONG PEOPLE, WERE IN THE WRONG PLACE, AT THE WRONG TIME.

COMPARE WHAT HAPPENED WHEN PETER WAS IMPATIENT AND OPERATING WITHOUT CHRIST TO WHEN HE WAS REALIGNED AND REASSIGNED BY CHRIST. . .

V.4 – EARLY IN THE MORNING . . .

V.5 – CALLED OUT . . .

IF YOU WAIT, HE WILL SHOW UP . . .

V.6 – CAST OUT YOUR NETS – GIVE YOU WHAT YOU COULD NOT CATCH

IF YOU WAIT, HE WILL BLESS YOU . . .

DON’T MISS YOUR MOMENT

WRONG PLACE

WRONG TIME

WRONG PEOPLE
