The risen Christ comes to us give us assurance that he has the power to forgive and to change things for the better. When the disciples’ attempts to bring in their daily catch of fish are failing, Jesus comes with the power of God’s blessing and they are told to cast their nets on “the other side” of the boat. The catch of 153 fish signifies that God’s love is for all of humanity as the number 153 represented the number of known tribes of humanity at the time. God’s love is for all and we experience anew his blessing and forgiveness through the Lord’s Supper.
