John 21:12 (NLT)
“Now come and have some breakfast!” Jesus said.
The invitation to eat was “a call to the resumption of that fellowship which His death had broken.” The fact that He ate with them would strengthen the conviction that He was really with them. Later Peter referred to it in his preaching (Acts 10:41). Jesus wanted them to know that personal contact with Him was possible after the resurrection. When we face a near death experience or a loved one dies, life changes. We can’t go back and live like we lived before. We have a new reality, and Jesus wants to be the center of that new reality. It takes a while for us to process, but He wants to walk us over the bridge into a new way of living that views life from an eternal perspective. He wants to decode the confusion and clarify His Lordship over our lives. How have you experienced His faithful guidance in your life changes?
