We Want To Hear Your Story
In chapter 21 of John’s gospel, we encounter Peter after the resurrection. He has decided to go fishing. Though an experienced fisherman, he fishes through the night but catches nothing. The next morning Jesus encounters him and commands him to cast the net in a certain place beside the boat. This is the result according to John:
What Peter could not make happen though he worked all night, now happens easily and quickly for Peter. He caught 153 fish because Jesus intervened.
The difference between the night and the moment in the morning for Peter is obvious: Jesus!
This is how we understand transformation. It is Jesus doing something in us or for us that we could not do on our own. We call such transformation a 153 story.
We want to collect 153 stories.
A 153 story might be about developing love for a person who use to annoy you, finding joy in serving or how God was with you in a valley of the shadow. It also might be a radical story like Jesus saving your marriage, healing your body or delivering you from an addiction. If you are a follower of Jesus, He is doing good in your life right now!
