Breakfast with Jesus - Faithlife Sermons

 Prelude - Jesus Saw Them Fishing

Call to Worship

Lord, You call us to to act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly together before You – and each other.  For the sake of our worship of You and our love for each other we come humbly now and seek Your presence.  Amen.

Hymn - Search Me, O God

Invocation and Lord's Prayer

Most Loving God, we come today not out of habit but in response to Your call that we worship You and be filled with Your grace and hope.  We join now in our prayer of hope given to us by Your Son who said pray in this manner: Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.  And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever. Amen.

Scripture Reading - John 21:1-14

1 Afterward Jesus appeared again to his disciples, by the Sea of Galilee. It happened this way: Simon Peter, Thomas (also known as Didymus), Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two other disciples were together. “I’m going out to fish,” Simon Peter told them, and they said, “We’ll go with you.” So they went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing.

Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus.

He called out to them, “Friends, haven’t you any fish?”

“No,” they answered.

He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish.

Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” As soon as Simon Peter heard him say, “It is the Lord,” he wrapped his outer garment around him (for he had taken it off) and jumped into the water. The other disciples followed in the boat, towing the net full of fish, for they were not far from shore, about a hundred yards. When they landed, they saw a fire of burning coals there with fish on it, and some bread.

10 Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish you have just caught.” 11 So Simon Peter climbed back into the boat and dragged the net ashore. It was full of large fish, 153, but even with so many the net was not torn. 12 Jesus said to them, “Come and have breakfast.” None of the disciples dared ask him, “Who are you?” They knew it was the Lord. 13 Jesus came, took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish. 14 This was now the third time Jesus appeared to his disciples after he was raised from the dead.

Joys and Concerns

As we go out into the world, You say to us, "Follow me."  In our homes with our households, You say to us, "Follow me."  At school and work, You call to us and say, "Follow me."  For wherever we are, You are there before us preparing the way for us to follow.  Lord, bless us to be hungry in seeking Your presence and Your peace.  In Jesus name, Amen.
