Breakfast with the Risen Lord!
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. The others stayed with the boat and pulled the loaded net to the shore, for they were only about a hundred yards from shore. When they got there, they found breakfast waiting for them—fish cooking over a charcoal fire, and some bread.
“Now come and have some breakfast!” Jesus said. None of the disciples dared to ask Him, “Who are You?’ They knew it was the Lord. Then Jesus served them the bread and the fish. This was the third time Jesus had appeared to His disciples since He had been raised from the dead.--------John 21:7-9,12, 13, 14
What an ABSOLUTELY AWESOME way to START your day, having breakfast with the King of kings, and Lord of lords, but not only having breakfast, but what about the fact that He has PREPARED it for you and is going to SERVE it to you. Now I don’t know how you feel about that, but it would knock my socks off if Jesus was at my house, when I wasn’t there and prepared a meal for me so it would be ready when I got home.
That’s kind of what He did here in these verses of Scripture. The disciples had been out fishing all night and hadn’t caught a thing, now that sounds like some of my fishing experiences. Nevertheless, they were tired and hungry, they had had a LONG weary night and probably were anxious to find something to eat and then rest for a while. When all of a sudden they see a figure on the beach, probably waving at them, Then He says, “Catch any fish?” and of course they answer back, “No!” So He gives them instructions on fishing, now these men were probably well seasoned fishermen, but they must have been so discouraged that they were willing to take advice from anyone. So Jesus proceeds to tell them to cast their nets on the right-hand side of the boat, they did and ended up catching 153 BIG fish and their net did not tear.
When they all had made it to shore, they saw that Jesus already had some fish cooking over a charcoal fire, and some bread waiting for them. He asked them to bring some more of the fish they had caught, then Jesus, Himself SERVED them.
It was Jesus Who was on the shore WAITING for them. It was Jesus Who had PREPARED a meal for their hungry body. It was Jesus Who INSTRUCTED them in the RIGHT direction to catch the fish. It was Jesus Who SERVED them.
If you have not given your HEART and LIFE to God, I’m here to tell you that; it is Jesus Who is WAITING for YOU to come to Him, it is Jesus Who has PREPARED a home for YOU in Heaven, It is Jesus Who is willing to INSTRUCT YOU in your walk with Him, it is Jesus Who will SERVE YOU with the cleansing of His precious blood, and all you have to do is: CONFESS your sins to GOD, asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING with ALL your HEART that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and start having breakfast with the Risen Lord, every morning. Do it NOW, while you STILL can. He’s WAITING!!!
