Today’s reading: John 21:20-22
Focus on your work
We read in John 21:20-22:
20 Then Peter, turning around, saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following, who also had leaned on His breast at the supper, and said, “Lord, who is the one who betrays You?” 21 Peter, seeing him, said to Jesus, “But Lord, what about this man?”
22 Jesus said to him, “If I will that he remain till I come, what is that to you? You follow Me.”
Yahshua just told Peter what would happen to him in the future and the work he needs to do in God’s name.
However, Peter looked around, perhaps out of curiosity, he asked about John and what would also happen to him.
Yahshua’s response basically means focus on what I have commanded for you. Thus, Christ once again said, “Follow Me.”
Sometimes, we can be like Peter. We look around, trying to compare our life to others. We tend to wonder why we seem to be going through tough times when others have it easier.
Yahshua is telling us that everyone is different. Everyone has a different curriculum in life. Everyone has different weaknesses and strengths. Thus, God knows how to develop each one of us according to how we can further improve our godly character.
Don’t get distracted and be too busy checking other people’s lives.
Focus on your God-given purpose and work.
Focus on your answer to Christ’s invitation, “Follow Me.”
