Breakfast by the lakeside

Although many Biblical Scholars will have us read this passage from the 21st chapter of John's Gospel with deep theological meaning, I rather enjoy taking it at face value! Although Jesus is now risen, he does not cease to be concerned about our everyday needs - he doesn't only expect us to turn to him about deeply spiritual matters.

How often do we work away on our own with few results? How often do we fail to recognise the Risen Lord at work in our daily lives? He is there to help us whenever we turn to him, and the results of his help can be quite amazing.

Jesus says; 'Come to me, all you who are overworked and heavy laden, and I will give you rest.' Perhaps we should allow Jesus to cook breakfast for us more often!

Come and have breakfast. An amazing line in the gospel and a great picture to illustrate it.
