|THREE MEETINGS WITH THE
- MAR 9, 1993
Psalms 55:17: Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry
aloud: and he shall hear my voice. .
I. THE MORNING MEETING.
John 21:4 But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but
the disciples knew not that it was Jesus.
A. HE IS CONCERNED ABOUT US
John 21:5 Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye
any meat? They answered him, No.
1. He is concerned
even over the little things in our lives. He knows the very hairs on our head.
B. HE GIVE US DIRECTION FOR EACH DAY
John 21:6 And he said unto them, Cast the net on the
right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast therefore, and now they
were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.
John 21:7 Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto
Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt
his fisher's coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the
John 21:8 And the other disciples came in a little ship; (for
they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits) dragging the net
John 21:9 As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a
fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread. John 21:10 Jesus saith
unto them, Bring of the fish which ye have now caught.
1. He does not want us to stumble
and wander in some wrong direction. He wants to give us guidance in our lives.
2. He is concerned about the
little things and the big things in our lives.
C. HE WANTS US TO HAVE ABUNDANT LIFE
John 21:11 Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great
fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was
not the net broken. .
1. Consecrate the morning to
Him and the day will take care of itself It is when we know that He is so real
we can touch Him, so near that we can whisper to Him that the day goes well.
2. Notice what Peter saw on the
shore that morning . A fire of coals burns only one other place in the New
Testament in: John 18:18 And the servants and officers stood there, who had made
a fire of coals; for it was cold: and they warmed themselves: and Peter stood
with them, and warmed himself. If this convicted Peter of his denial, the
morning meeting with Jesus, brought confession and forgiveness.
II. THE NOONTIDE MEETING
John 4:6 Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his
journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.
A. Jesus said,” Give me to drink." He has given us
much, but we need to give something to Him.
B. Jesus said in effect "If thou knewest who it is
that is speaking to thee " If you only knew my Saviour.” I have heard Him speak,
and He is Wonderful.
C. " Go call thy husband" If there is a sin we have
hidden we need to meet Jesus and receive His forgiveness.
Rom 2:4 Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and
longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?
III. THE EVENING MEETING:
John 20:19 Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week,
when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the
Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.
A. HE BRINGS PEACE AT THE END OF THE DAY HE WAS NEAR
THEN AND HE IS NEAR NOW. HE SHOWED THEM HIS HANDS. THOSE HANDS FOUND ME AND HELD
ME, KEPT MY HEART FROM BREAKING AND BRUSHED AWAY TEARS.
Perhaps this is why David said in: (Psa 55:17 KJV) Evening, and morning, and at
noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice. (3 times, 3
meetings) (Psa 119:164 KJV) Seven times a day do I praise thee because of thy
God bless you
