25 Jul 2017 FISH DINNER!

John 21:9 

“Then, as soon as they had come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid on it, and bread.”

Have you ever experienced a meal so delectable that years later the memory still makes your mouth water?  There was once a restaurant in north Idaho that was mine and Joyce’s favorite. Their specialty was baked potatoes. It was heartbreaking to drive by our favorite eatery on a trip north only to discover the building had been destroyed by fire. No more of those wonderful baked potatoes for us.

Today’s scripture has often made me wonder what that seashore breakfast must have tasted like to the disciples who had been invited to come and dine. Think about it! The Master who had created the universe had Himself prepared fish and bread. I am sure that they had never wrapped their lips around anything so delicious.

The Master invites each and every one of us to gather around His table and partake of the food He prepares for us. His food nourishes and sustains us to do His will for our lives.

If you are trying to survive on the scraps of this world, I want to invite you to move up to the Lord’s table and enjoy the meal He has prepared for His disciples. It will do more than sustain you — it will equip you for His service.

May God richly bless you as you bless others by your words and actions!
