God Knows…When I’m Left Out or Left Behind – Part 2
Jesus had promised to meet the disciples in Galilee, and they were eager to see Him again. Soon seven of them were gathered on the shore of the Sea of Galilee. The seaside brought back many memories. So many things reminded them of the words and works of Jesus.
 “I’m going fishing,” Peter told the others. A good night’s fishing could earn them money. All night they worked. Again and again they threw out the nets and hauled them back in. Empty every time! When day began to dawn, they headed in. “Have you any food?” came a shout. The disciples looked up to see someone standing on the shore. “No,” they called back. “Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some,” suggested the man.
Down went the net again. It was hardly beneath the water when so many fish entered the net that they couldn’t pull it up! John looked at the man and exclaimed, “It is the Lord!” Peter jumped into the water and waded ashore to greet Jesus. The others followed, dragging the net full of fish with them.
Beach Breakfast
Nearing the water’s edge, they found that Jesus had a charcoal fire on the beach. He asked them to bring some of the fish they had just caught. They dragged the net up and counted—153 big fish. When everything was ready, Jesus said, “Come and eat.” As the disciples ate, they remembered the other time when Jesus had helped them fish, right before He called them to leave their nets and become fishers of men. The disciples understood that Jesus still wanted them to work for Him. While they were doing His work, He would take care of them.
Jesus turned to Peter and asked, “Simon, son of Jonas, do you love Me?” Peter answered, “Yes, Lord, You know that I love You.” “Feed My lambs,” Jesus said. Soon Jesus, the Good Shepherd, would be going back to heaven. Jesus was asking Peter to help take care of His followers. A second time Jesus asked Simon Peter, “Do you love Me?” Again Peter humbly replied, “Yes, Lord, You know I love you.” “Tend My sheep,” said Jesus.
The third time Jesus asked him, “Simon, do you love Me?” Peter remembered how he had denied Jesus three times. Would no one ever trust him again? “Oh, Lord,” he answered, “You know everything. You know that I love You!” “Feed My sheep,” Jesus repeated, entrusting him with an important task. The other disciples were listening. They saw how much patience, forgiveness, and love Jesus has for someone who messes up.

About Aunt Carole and Uncle Dan

Hosts Aunt Carole and Uncle Dan bring their warmth and love to children around the world as they narrate exciting, dramatized stories straight from the pages of the Bible, the annals of history and the experiences of life. Your Story Hour has encouraged young people (kids, teens and the young at heart) for nearly six decades, helping them to embrace high moral principles, while at the same time enjoying storytelling at its best. Kids love to "be there" when David slays the giant, "feel the heat" as Daniel's three friends are cast into the fiery furnace, "experience the excitement" as Clara Barton risks her life to save the wounded of the Civil War, "understand the risks" as Paul Revere makes his famous ride, "feel the wonder" as an angel protects two children from a robber or God miraculously spares an honest man's family from starvation. Hundreds of wonderful stories, taken from the international radio broadcast, are available on CD (or cassette). In addition, a special, interfaith Bible course, during which children earn CDs from Your Story Hour's Life of Jesus album (26 stories), is available for kids 9 years old and older. And, starting in 2008, Clubhouse magazine will be available online free of charge!
