What was going on? Why were the fish not biting on this early spring morning?
21 After this, Jesus showed himself again to the disciples by the sea of Tiberias. Simon Peter, Thomas (known as Didymus), Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two other disciples, were all together. So the disciple that Jesus loved spoke to Peter. Jesus appears to his apostles by the Sea of Galilee. Why does Jesus look at the fish and then ask Simon Peter, 'Do you love me?'.
The life that had previously been marked with familiarity and comfort, now brought no results. It was no longer their life. 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.
So Simon Peter went aboard and dragged the net to the shore.
Then Jesus served them the bread and the fish. This was the third time Jesus appeared to his disciples since he had been raised from the dead. I connect with this story because I love my morning time with Jesus. He does not make me a delicious breakfast of fish and bread, but He does feed me.
What does my day hold and what does God what me to do today?
When circumstances in my life are leaving me uncomfortable and I miss the familiarity of what I know, I can trust in my Jesus to nourish and provide for me. I love the study of the gospels because I love the main character so much! I also love what comes next because Jesus continues on as the main character, even after He has ascended back into Heaven. Do you wonder what is ahead for you?
Rest in His presence and enjoy some time with Him this morning. He will lead you and work through you according to His plan. And the disciple went everywhere and preached, and the Lord worked through them, confirming what they said by many miraculous signs.
