John 21:10-14 (NIVUK)
10 Jesus said to them, ‘Bring some of the fish you have just caught.’ 11 So Simon Peter climbed back into the boat and dragged the net ashore. It was full of large fish, 153, but even with so many the net was not torn. 12 Jesus said to them, ‘Come and have breakfast.’ None of the disciples dared ask him, ‘Who are you?’ They knew it was the Lord. 13 Jesus came, took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish. 14 This was now the third time Jesus appeared to his disciples after he was raised from the dead.

‘Come and have breakfast.’ What a simple yet profound invitation! How amazing it is that God should want to sit down and eat with us. Bread and fish, daily fare, become a royal feast. Again, the mundane is transformed, the everyday shot through with divine.

At the start of this new day, we hear your invitation once more, and come and sit with you.
