Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be writtenJohn 21:25
We can never stop counting the miracles and blessings of Jesus Christ in our lives. We can’t even mention every single thing that God has done for us, and the truth is, that there are many things that He’s done that we don’t even know about. Things God has protected us from while we were growing up as kids and the “bullets” that we dodged as adults – depending on what age you are. Because God has been protecting us, we are alive today!
This was the day after the resurrection and Jesus had already “threw down” on the grill – making fish for breakfast. Jesus reminded His disciples about everything He had done before His death and taught them many other things.
When Jesus rose from the dead the disciple’s faith was resurrected. They found renewed purpose, power, hope, and even a hot meal. You can say that Jesus knows how to eat. Many of His messages were related to food and eating.
The question is why does God have to remind us? It’s because we sometimes lose sight of what God has done because there’s more that we desire in life, but when Jesus Christ died on the cross that was more than enough for us. We didn’t even deserve that!
Our God is the God of grace, and that means, that He blesses us even though we didn’t earn the blessings, and He provides for us because He loves us as His children. God wants to meet you at His table. He wants to spend time with you. How long has it been since you really spent intimate time with God?
Jesus is Still Working
God is not limited to what country you live in, or to what you can bring to the table. He is our Heavenly Father, who richly supplies us with every good thing if we delight in Him!
These blessings that He gives are not only based on money and material things, either. God knows what we don’t know we need, even before we need it. God even sometimes gives us what we haven’t asked for. He is intentional about everything He does and He knows us better than we know ourselves.
The work of Jesus Christ did not end when He rose from the dead and ascended to His throne, but it continued through His apostles and now through His church – the Body of Christ. We must continue His work and finish it – individually and collectively. Even so, Lord Jesus, come!
Lastly, Jesus told the disciples,
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
9 After saying this, he was taken up into a cloud while they were watching, and they could no longer see him. 10 As they strained to see him rising into heaven, two white-robed men suddenly stood among them. 11 “Men of Galilee,” they said, “why are you standing here staring into heaven? Jesus has been taken from you into heaven, but someday he will return from heaven in the same way you saw him go!”Acts 1:8-9
Today, if you have not received Salvation or you would like to rededicate your life back to Christ, say this prayer:
God, I know that I am a sinner. Right now, Lord, I turn from my sins, and I ask you to forgive me. Jesus, I believe that you died on the cross and rose from the grave, for me. I open my heart and life for You to come in, and I receive You as my Lord and Savior. Thank You, God for saving me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
