Come and Dine! – An Easter Message

Jesus said to them, “Children, do you have any fish?” They answered him, “No.” He said to them, “Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some.” So they cast it, and now they were not able to haul it in, because of the quantity of fish. John 21:5-6 ESV

Whether we live in a nursing home or in a mansion on Main Street, there are times when we fail, get discouraged and worse yet, get completely off track of God’s plan for our lives. But the good news of Easter and of the story from John chapter 21, is that Jesus is waiting for us all through the night and He still has a job for us to do. He hasn’t forgotten about us, and He knows what we have been going through. All night while we have been failing at catching even one fish, Jesus has been up catching plenty and has been preparing for us to join Him in the morning for a feast. I hope you enjoy today’s message which was recorded at Life Care Center and includes another song I love to sing for Easter, “Come and Dine!”

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
