The homeboys were out fishing. Probably still feeling lost without Jesus leading and feeding them everyday. We’re not sure if they went fishing to stay occupied or they were hungry. A fisherman faces rejection with every cast of with every setting of the net. Jesus had been abandoned, rejected and denied by these fishermen, but He still cooked them breakfast.
Here’s the story from John 21:1-14 “ “Later, Jesus appeared again to the disciples beside the Sea of Galilee. This is how it happened. Several of the disciples were there—Simon Peter, Thomas (nicknamed the Twin), Nathanael from Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two other disciples.
Simon Peter said, “I’m going fishing.” “We’ll come, too,” they all said. So they went out in the boat, but they caught nothing all night. At dawn Jesus was standing on the beach, but the disciples couldn’t see who he was.
He called out, “Fellows, have you caught any fish?” “No,” they replied.
Then he said, “Throw out your net on the right-hand side of the boat, and you’ll get some!”
So they did, and they couldn’t haul in the net because there were so many fish in it.
Then the disciple Jesus loved said to Peter, “It’s the Lord!” When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on his tunic (for he had stripped for work), jumped into the water, and headed to shore.
The others stayed with the boat and pulled the loaded net to the shore, for they were only about a hundred yards from shore. When they got there, they found breakfast waiting for them—fish cooking over a charcoal fire, and some bread. “Bring some of the fish you’ve just caught,” Jesus said.
So Simon Peter went aboard and dragged the net to the shore.
There were 153 large fish, and yet the net hadn’t torn.
Now come and have some breakfast!” Jesus said.
None of the disciples dared to ask him, “Who are you?” They knew it was the Lord.
Then Jesus served them the bread and the fish.
This was the third time Jesus had appeared to his disciples since he had been raised from the dead.”
John 21:1-14 NLT
Rejection and abandonment by friends will happen, don't let it affect who you are as a compassionate believer in Christ. Life has a way of tempting us to corrupt our character. God has forgiven your faults. Don't let the devil help you create a spiral of shame that makes you think you are an unworthy loser incapable of being redeemed by His love.
Thanks for your time. Go do something nice for somebody. Jesu loves you and so do we.
