“Who Are You?”

Absorbing God’s Word

“Jesus said to them, “Come and have breakfast.” None of the disciples dared ask him, “Who are you?” They knew it was the Lord.” John 21:12

Absorbing God’s Word

Prior to Easter, I agonized over the death of Jesus. Since then, my focus has been on the multiple appearances that He made after His death. Jesus didn’t always show up as the person He resembled when He was alive. He came as someone looking completely different.

That’s how Jesus shows up for me and everyone else who believes. He comes to us looking completely different than our expectations. Jesus has allowed me to meet Him face to face through the lost, the broken, the homeless, the angry, the happy, the discouraged, the suicidal, the forgotten, the blind, the deaf, the mute, the sick and the dying. He’s also shown Himself to me in the shy, the proud, the arrogant, the humble, the wealthy, the poor, the accepted, the rejected, the unloved and the loved. That’s how Jesus has revealed Himself to me.

Interesting, huh? I used to expect Him to appear as the beautiful Jesus. Instead, He appears as the crucified Jesus, the human Jesus. What a blessing that has been for me.

Accounting of God’s Word

Who has Jesus used to reveal Himself to me?
