Come and have breakfast

When they got out on land, they saw a charcoal fire in place, with fish laid out on it, and bread. Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish that you have just caught.” So Simon Peter went aboard and hauled the net ashore, full of large fish, 153 of them. And although there were so many, the net was not torn. Jesus said to them, “Come and have breakfast.” Now none of the disciples dared ask him, “Who are you?” They knew it was the Lord. Jesus came and took the bread and gave it to them, and so with the fish. This was now the third time that Jesus was revealed to the disciples after he was raised from the dead. John 21:9-14

In today’s verses we get a glimpse of Jesus after the resurrection. Jesus is acting and doing things just as He did before the resurrection. Today He is preparing to have breakfast with the disciples. Something He must have done hundreds of time during His ministry. In this few verses we can also glimpse how we too will behave after we receive our glorified bodies.

Our bodies will be much the same as they are now with on very big exception; we will no longer have a sin nature. We will no longer have the desire to sin; sin will lose its allure. We will no longer be slaves to sin and we will be able to live as God intended us to live, in a close relationship with Him. Our desires will be for God not the world. We will do His will because we will desire to do His will. No longer will sin turn us away from Him.

Have a blessed day,

The name of this blog is taken from 1 Peter 3:13 - “always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience. This verse became special to me over ten years ago when I was asked to teach an adult Sunday school class on Christian apologetics. This interest grew over the years to the point that I took some graduate level classes in apologetics. I think the best way to be prepared to give and answer to everyone who asks is to know scripture. It is my hope that through these short devotionals the reader will become more familiar with each verse. I have tried when possible to make them personal hoping in some small way to show that God’s word written over two thousand years ago is still relevant today. In the writing of these short devotionals I have been able to better understand how God’s word impacts my life. It is my hope that you too will come closer to our Lord Jesus and develop a closer relationship with Him. Finally, if the reader finds anything in conflict with scripture please let me know. God’s word is the final authority always overrules anything I might write. David

    I look forward to that day. It seems today’s world is uglier and uglier, and I am weak. But someday this body will be raised.
