Many churches throughout the world use a Bible reading schedule called a "lectionary." It's just a fancy word meaning "selected readings." Posts like this reflect on the readings for an upcoming Sunday or other Church holiday, as found in the historic one-year lectionary.
"Jesus is my life." It's easy to say that. It's a little harder when we are confused and doubtful that he actually has a plan. What do we finally do? In John 21:3, Simon Peter decided to go back to his business. Try to re-start the career. He could at least put food on his family's table. Except he couldn't.
After an utterly unsuccessful night at work, Jesus showed up on the shore, about a hundred yards away, possibly back lit, and to people who might have needed glasses. I'll never recognize a face at a hundred yards, even with my glasses.
What does Jesus do? Even for those who didn't recognize him, he provided for their needs. They could say Jesus was their life. They caught several days' income. Jesus provided them with life. And he made breakfast.
If Jesus is our life, he may well use us within our careers, or he may redirect us. He cares for his people. The risen Lord is the Lord of life, on this earth and through eternity. He has revealed himself.
