Follow Me #288

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.” (John 21:21-22)

It is not at all uncommon for people to compare themselves to others when it comes to spiritual expectations and responsibilities. Jesus had just told Peter he would die for Him (Jno. 21:18-19). A difficult road of painful sacrifice was ahead of him. But he was to trust the Lord and walk that path, regardless of what happened to others. When the Lord commands you to do His will, do not complain. Trust and obey the Lord without comparing yourself to others. The Lord expects each of us to follow Him. Let us do so wholeheartedly.
