Word of the day: dare

John 21

9 When they got out on land, they saw a charcoal fire in place, with fish laid out on it, and bread. 10 Jesus said to them, “Bring some of the fish that you have just caught.” 11 So Simon Peter went aboard and hauled the net ashore, full of large fish, 153 of them. And although there were so many, the net was not torn. 12 Jesus said to them, “Come and have breakfast.” Now none of the disciples dared ask him, “Who are you?” They knew it was the Lord. 13 Jesus came and took the bread and gave it to them, and so with the fish. 14 This was now the third time that Jesus was revealed to the disciples after he was raised from the dead.

Do you wonder why none of them dared to ask Him who He was?

Do you think it was because they were in such awe they were afraid it was all an illusion and if they asked Him who He was, the bubble would burst and He would vanish from before their eyes?

Or maybe they were afraid to ask because they had let Him down so many times before the crucifixion? Was it pride that kept them from asking? Or did they finally get it, seeing with the eyes of their hearts?

Have you ever had a moment in your life when you reached out to someone who desperately needed help, looked into his eyes and wondered, is this my Savior? I have. It was such a holy experience I didn’t dare ask him who he was.

Instead, I dare to trust, to believe because Jesus said if I do it for the least of these, his brothers, I do it for Him.

Dare to believe.
