“Feed my lambs, feed my sheep.”

John 21:15-19 

Jesus tells Peter that he will be led in a new path, one that is unfamiliar to him. And he will be led to a place where he will not want to go. Peter did not know what to make of Jesus’ statements. At times we also may not understand what Jesus is saying to us. However, no matter who we are or what positions we hold, we still are not in charge of our life. We cannot control what our future will be. However, there is one area of control: we can make the decision to walk with Jesus daily and to trust Him with all our hearts.

Jesus loves us and is with us every second of the day. Are we willing to give up our illusion of control and place our life in Jesus’ hand? Jesus loves us and will walk with us every step of the way. Jesus will guide us and strengthen us when we need help to deal with life. Jesus’ final statement to Peter was: “Follow me.” Today Jesus speaks those same two words to us! Will we follow & walk with him?
