It is the Lord
Jesus said to his disciples: “Come and have breakfast.” What a beautiful invitation that is. And the wonderful truth about it is that this is the invitation Jesus extends to each one of us also. Because of his resurrection from the dead, Jesus is available to us in all the ordinary things of our daily lives. He wants us to know that he is with us at breakfast because he lives in us in our homes and families. He is with us in our joys and sorrows, our tears and laughter. He is with us in our love relationships and in our enmities, if we would only open our hearts to recognise him and let him shape our lives. One of the big mistakes we often make is to regard our religion as something we do for God. Christianity is about what God is doing for us in and through Christ who is our way, our truth and our life. This is what has to give shape to our lives, even at breakfast!
