let’s eat:day five

[Read & meditate on John 21.1-14. What was significant about Jesus offering this meal to the disciples?]

Every single one of the disciples had turned their back on Jesus in His greatest hour of need. Not to mention the fact that disciples were supposed to be making disciples, not fishing. I suppose they may have believed that they were failures–they had failed their Rabbi. Jesus offers them a meal as they come in from fishing, and communicates his acceptance and grace. He doesn’t condemn them for their failures, but loves them and gives them the opportunity to keep going forward.
