Easter Saturday

“When they got out on the land, they saw a charcoal fire already laid and fish placed on it, and bread.”  (John 21:9)  One of the resurrections stories tells of Christ fixing breakfast for the disciples!  What a beautiful thought.  Cosmic power and concern for practical things.  The fourth petition of the Lord’s prayer (give us this day our daily bread) teaches us to speak to the Lord re. our practical needs, because He cares.  It is a prayer of trust. “Every good gift is from above and comes down from the Father of lights” (James 1:17).  It also assumes responsible effort.  “Bring some of the fish which you have now caught” (John 21:10), says the Lord as a reminder that one of the ways He will answer our prayer for bread is by blessing our efforts.  Take courage, dear friend.  The Lord is near.  He cares about our needs.  Ask!  Obey!  Trust!
