“As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread” (John 21:9).
As in a fire, additional sure, Bradley Junior welcoming you to another broadcast of the Baptist Bible and will be in and he will and will and will will see and will will and all he he said he will will and he all will will will all will live in all he all will all all he will will.
Today we bring you the second portion of the message entitled, breakfast with Jesus.
Something about that title like think of these disciples having breakfast with Jesus shows that Jesus was caring for them difficult time and invited them to come and die. We hope the message will be a blessing to you today. The first thing we would look at is the provision of Jesus. This is another display of the fact that Jesus cares we've seen that repeatedly in this study of the Gospel of John, Jesus, Jesus cared about the sick latest healing hand on the sick, and even the Dan and raise them up. Jesus cared about the Samaritan woman when she was at Jacob's well. He went his way past that he would not usually have chosen because he was going to meet this woman woman rejected by others because of her life but Jesus came to call centers.
Jesus cared for his disciples as they often work and feeling often make terrible mistakes, but he cared for.
He cared for the hungry. He fed the multitudes on and on. The list can go to put out Jesus and here is another great example. He knew that these disciples had been out there all night.
They were tired they were hungry and some Jesus has a five already burning and fish that he is preparing for them to eat as they come upon the shoe.
Think of the psalmist says 14 N. frame. He remember that we are dust as consolation is sometimes we can become frustrated with ourselves can't accomplish more.
I want to do more. I want to do better. I want to serve the effectively seem always to be behind seem never to catch up with what I know really is important, should never excuse any difference or laziness. It is a comfort to know that God himself recognizes our friend. We are dust, and then Isaiah chapter 40 verse 11 says he shall feed his flock like a shepherd patient gather the lambs with his arm and carried them in his bosom, and shall gently lead no part with shepherd is depicted in the Scripture one who cared greatly for his sheep going over the mountains and across the desert plains to find that one that was lost in picking it up blanket on the shoulder carrying it safely back home, guiding them into green pastors meeting them beside the still waters feeding them as they were hungry. So here he says he shall feed his flock like a shepherd shall gather the lambs with his one of his children your laminations flock, and according to the prophetic reference Jesus would beam gently and tenderly with the sheep. How good to know Jesus cares. You may reach times of depression are discouraged with what you feel You have a sense of loneliness, but to be able to know all times he care like such a tremendous difference. Jesus considers our physical means that some people become health fanatics and that's mainly what they are concerned about the focus on diet are concerned about things of that sort and none but they forget the importance of that which is spiritual because their thinking only about the physical, but there's a place for balance in Jesus had things in proper balance. In Mark 631 says unto them, yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while for there were many coming and going and they had no leisure so much as to so at a time when the disciples were being pressed by the multitude, the crowds were so great they had no leisure time.
There were times they did not have opportunity even to eat, Jesus says, part and rest for a time in Matthew chapter 6 verse 31 therefore take no thought, saying, what shall we eat or what shall we drink or wherewithal shall we be clothed for after all these things do the Gentiles seek.
For your heavenly father know that you have need of these he know your situation he know that you need something to eat he know that you need a roof over your head, but seeking first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.
Take therefore no thought for the morrow for the morrow shall take thought of the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil there Spurgeon said much had to be said and done, but they must first have breakfast. They were to be questioned, rebuked, instructed commission warned but they must first be."
Jesus knew their needs physically. He knew the weakness of human beings and the fact that this was something that could not be overlooked sometimes in a counseling situation have had to ask people tell me about your eating habits, deli, how many are sleep you get night and became that their failure to live a disciplined life in that regard was contributing at least to their problem that they did not eat correctly they got very little sleep. The Lord made us in such a way that we have to have food to eat, and we have to have adequate sleep and if we rob ourselves of that we are not respecting the temple of the Holy Spirit body which he has given us, and for which we should care.
Jesus had a lot to say to these disciples. Spurgeon puts it, to be questioned and rebuked and instructed commission warned but he won going to do all that on an empty stomach. He fed them first, and I think there's something to be said for that from a physical standpoint and spiritually as well. Pastor knows that if his congregation needs to be rebuked a dozen rebuked them unless he first sees when they have fanned on the gospel fanned on the good news concerning Jesus Christ and him crucified, then will be in much better frame of mind to receive whatever instruction and rebuked may be necessary.
Jesus provided them was miraculously asked. I remember this is before they brought their fish in Jesus already was preparing fish farming the grill.
The fire come from where the fish come from officer they were produced by Jesus. We don't have to be so astounded when we remember that during his ministry he fanned on one occasion 5000 and on another occasion, but moves fishes.
Jesus had an exciting event for those disciples. Jesus had put them in companies of 50 each ticket message going online pass and passing out fish passing up fix passing brick 5000 boys, but they got through one group of 50 basket still exciting. Jesus performed this great miracle before their very eyes. This one not so large in number but significant.
Nevertheless, that when they arrive on the shoe Jesus is preparing breakfast. The fires burning the fish cooking. He's preparing to feed and it's a reminder of the provision that God so often makes for us. We may not see the way of where at the end of our sounds weird. Not sure how long he has told us not to worry. Each day problems would take care of themselves and not to fret about the fact that there was fire burning and fish already that he was preparing reveals the Lord is not restricted to the labors of the servants he may well use them. He later received the fish they caught and welcomed them in, but without them.
He was also able to provide the fish that was needed for their breakfast any sets an example for us to follow.
Matthew chapter 10 verse 40 he that receive. If you receive with me and he that received with me receive of him except he that receive the prophet in the name of the prophet shall receive a prophet's reward, and he that receive with a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man, Jesus showed hospitality. Jesus provided for the on this occasion. Romans 1213 says distributing to the necessity of saints, given to hospitality.
Sad to say in our day that there doesn't seem to be as much of that is the word some years ago. People are busy.
They got many obligations caught up in their own activities, but in times gone by. People frequently visited in each other's homes and invited friends and for meals in times of fellowship but I read this I thought about the hospitality that I have received over 65 years traveling among churches all over the country. I have visited hundreds of home but I'm sure my younger days I took some of that for granted.
I didn't realize how hard some of those women had worked in the kitchen to prepare that special me. One nice thing about things people thought with the pictures, we got a really have a big meal and I mean some of them were spec just taken a little bit of all of it was amazing just tasty and wonderful and the fellowship was great, but sacrifices some of them hard work to prepare that special me and to show hospitality with great kindness and love and affection draws you to one another when you have that kind of fellowship with Jesus not only provided for these, but he set an example for us in the fourth thing we consider is the welcome of Jesus. He says come and die as the resurrected Savior is still loving and compassionate. The disciples are invited to draw near. They first were the distance, and maybe because it was still early morning, for whatever reason they did not recognize him at first it was John was the first want to know this is Jesus, and have the desire even as I got closer, just to confirm it and say are you really Jesus, but harshly knew it was but there was something magnificent about humans is resurrected for the policy different from the situation when he had traveled with them during his ministry, but he invites them to crawl me come and die word comes warm. Somebody knocks on your door. You say the warm reception I want you to come here.
I want to visit with you. Glad you're here, Jesus says come and die to reminder of those beautiful words of Matthew 1128 when he says, come on to me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Come on to me some further words for Mr. Spurgeon, is it not wonderful that the holy Lord should have communion with his faulty followers yet breakfast with us, with us who have doubted him as Thomas did with us who have denied him as Peter D with us for suck him and flagged as all the rest did he always send this was now without physical necessity. Risen from the dead, and he did not need to eat yet. Did he still have familiar fellowship with sinful on one occasion he ate a piece of goldfish in the honeycomb, but I suppose that on this occasion he also ate with them for one does not ask others to come and dine and then refrain from eating, all you child of God conscious of your gross unworthiness, for he invites you now to feast with himself."
Come and Jesus words to the church at Laodicea where this if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come into him and will sup with him, and he you today.
As a follower of Jesus Christ maybe had been guilty of some of the sins of enumerated regarding the church becoming self-sufficient and self-righteous. But you seen the error of your way. You been convicted of, and you come humbly today to admit I deserved nothing. I do not deserve communion with Jesus. I do not deserve breakfast with Jesus, but he says, I will come pick you unshipped with him. I wonder, in our busy rush.
How many of us miss what could be of marvelous beginning of the day, a time of spiritual uplift if we indeed had breakfast with Jesus now so a lot is that we can have breakfast with him. Like these disciples.
They were in his presence. The resurrected safe but we have fellowship and communion with if we start the day thinking about all of our troubles frustrated about the problems of the day before we started on the wrong but think about when you begin your day. I want to have breakfast with Jesus like these disciples I will have my mind focused on him. I want to think about his goodness.
I want to be thankful for his mercy. I want to acknowledge his grace. I want the whole day to be a day walking Jesus. I will have the kind of testimony that when others observed me they might say is they did of the apostles in the early church. They took knowledge in them that they had been with Jesus. Breakfast with Jesus and you would never come to Jesus. May this be the day that you call Revelation 2217 and the Spirit and the bride say, and let him that here and say come and let him that is a first come. And whosoever will let him take the water of life freely so I don't have friends who are Christians and I was to have a close walk with the Lord. I see others at times come forward and confess the faith in Christ that I wish I could do that but I have my doubts. I question myself. I see my unworthiness asking the question, are you hungry, dine my simulated hunger and thirst after righteousness for they shall be filled.
If you have appetite for divine grace come to Jesus if you're thirsty he says come and drink come and today we brought you the second and final portion of the message. Breakfast with Jesus. If you'd like to get the complete message on CD requested when writing notes that the Baptist Bible.
