Fish for breakfast . . .it is time to begin sharing!

Fish for breakfast? While many have had fish and grits, especially in the southern U.S. states, or even a variety of fish and a salad when perhaps visiting some island nations, it is not a new idea! Check out the writings form John:
But when the morning had now come, Jesus stood on the shore; yet the disciples did not know that it was Jesus. Then Jesus said to them, “Children, have you any food?” They answered Him, “No.” And He said to them, “Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some. So they cast, and now they were not able to draw it in because of the multitude of fish. Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his outer garment (for he had removed it), and plunged into the sea. But the other disciples came in the little boat (for they were not far from land, but about two hundred cubits), dragging the net with fish.  Then, as soon as they had come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid on it, and bread. Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish which you have just caught.”  Simon Peter went up and dragged the net to land, full of large fish, one hundred and fifty-three; and although there were so many, the net was not broken. Jesus said to them, “Come and eat breakfast.” Yet none of the disciples dared ask Him, “Who are You?”—knowing that it was the Lord. Jesus then came and took the bread and gave it to them, and likewise the fish. This is now the third time Jesus showed Himself to His disciples after He was raised from the dead. (John 21:1-14)
A communion breakfast of fish and bread . . . all prepared by Jesus! It must have been nice.  But check this out . . . Peter denied Jesus three times. This was the third time He appeared to the disciples after His resurrection. Jesus would now ask Peter three times, "Do you love Me?"

So after Jesus fed His followers, He told Peter to "Feed My sheep". (John 2:17) As we are well fed through Scriptures and teaching, it is time we began feeding others!

Are we acting like "new creatures in Christ"?

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are o...
