Readers of the Bible, do you really comprehend the Divine Person of Jesus Christ…. as you read…. consider today’s message.
John 11:25 “I am the resurrection, and the life; he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die….”
Revelation 1:18 “I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive forevermore, Amen, and have the keys of hades and of death.”
Now read John chapter 21
1. First the BARREN RESULT of service according to our self-will contrasted to Christ directed service… Verses 3 – 6
2.Christ’s provision for the needs of His servants… Verses12 – 14
3. Love for Christ, the only proper motive for service…. Verse 15 – 17 …. Peter denied Jesus 3 times and now Jesus gives him 3 times to express His love for Him.
4. Feed MY lambs and sheep… all Pastors, missionaries, teachers and parents would do well to remember that they are but UNDERshepherds charged with the care of Christ’s sheep…. for a short time.
5. Life and Death…. verses 11 – 22…. Jesus alone determines both the time and the manner of His servants’ death…. we cannot compare ourselves with others.
Prayer for Today
Loving Heavenly Father, guide us into the path that you have for us to walk and may we have your joy and peace for today… amen.
