Breakfast with the King

Jesus said to them, “Come and have breakfast.” None of the disciples dared ask him, “Who are you?” They knew it was the Lord. Jesus came, took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish. This was now the third time Jesus appeared to his disciples after he was raised from the dead. John 21:12-14

Because of the violence against Him on the way to the cross, Jesus must have been completely unrecognizable. We saw this with Mary at the tomb and now we see it here. And these were people who walked with Him daily so certainly they should have known who he was.

Scripture also teaches us that “He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him” Isaiah 53:2 But it was never his physical appearance that attracted people (including us) to Him. It was the saving message and the love and a whole host of desirable qualities that attracted us to Him.

Take a little time now and worship – not the things he does or says, but Him.
