Day 21 – Feasting On John 21
On this last and final day of the Feast we have been doing for the past 21 days I have two things to share with you, both taken from John 21. But before I share those two things, I want to say thank you so much to every one who joined this 21 day feast. I was honored to share with you the dishes God shared with me and I hope you enjoyed the feast as much as I did. Now for the final two ingredients used in this final dish.
First, may we never forget John was a lover of Jesus Christ and even though his words can sound extravagant and almost unbelievable at times, they are not inflated, for when you taste of God’s love, it feels over the top to you, but to God generosity is His nature. John reminds us of this when he tells us how he and the disciples joined Peter on a fishing trip, but caught nothing…until Jesus showed up on the shore. With one sentence from Jesus they went from nothing to abundance. “Jesus *said to them, “Children, you do not have any fish, do you?” They answered Him, “No.” And He said to them, “Cast the net on the right-hand side of the boat and you will find a catch.” So they cast, and then they were not able to haul it in because of the great number of fish.” (John 21:5-6). Get ready for sudden changes to happen that when the shock is gone will bring great jubilation.
Second and finally, may we all fall in love with Jesus like John did, for God’s love keeps you humble and humility is remaining teachable. Pride makes us think we know it all or we know enough and that hinders the abundance God is seeking to give to us. If we want to prosper we must remain humble (teachable) for even John said…”This is the disciple who is testifying to these things and wrote these things, and we know that his testimony is true.
And there are also many other things which Jesus did, which if they were written in detail, I suppose that even the world itself would not contain the books that would be written.” (John 21:24-25).
May we all fall so in love with Jesus that His kindness continually leads us to repentance so we stay on the narrow path that leads to life; and so His abundance keeps us humble because His wisdom is unsearchable and honestly we have a lot to learn. Love never fails, that is why God is love. Keep feasting for the more you feast the more you will fall in love.
