John 21:1-14

“Jesus came and took the bread and gave it to them, and so with the fish” (v13).  The disciples may have thought that the resurrected Jesus was very different from the man they had known and shared life with, but here Jesus was, doing what he always had done: providing for them and sharing a meal with them.  “Come and have breakfast” (v12) he said, inviting them to continue real fellowship with him.

“It is the Lord!” (v7).  The Son of God who put on flesh to dwell among humans, the baby who grew to be Messiah, is alive.  He invites us into real relationship by His Spirit.
