Shepherd the Lord’s Lambs

(11/26) |

Verses:John 21:1 ~ 21:25
Key Verse:17. He said to him the third time, Simon, son of John, do you love Me? Peter was grieved that He said to him the third time, Do you love Me? And he said to Him, Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You. Jesus said to him, Feed My sheep.
Topic:Shepherd the Lord’s Lambs
Emphasis:Peter denied the Lord three times (in John 18). Here the Lord also asked him three times “Do you love Me?” This indicated that we should love Him and loving each other is what the Lord is mostly concerned for.
Meditate:Lord has sent His disciples (in John 20:21), but Peter still returned to his old job of fishing. The Lord especially waited for him on the seaside and reminded him of two things: 1, Shepherd the Lord’s lambs; and 2, Follow the Lord (in verse 22)
Prayer:Lord, I praise You. You are God of love. You understand Peter’s weakness. You did not rebuke him, but encouraged him in love, that he would follow You and shepherd Your sheep.
Hymn:1221 Jesus, our wonderful Shepherd
