Feed my Lambs…tend my sheep…feed my sheep

April 1, 2016

In the Gospel according to John (21;15-19), we have the discourse between Jesus and Peter where Jesus asks Peter if he loves him three times. We feel the pain Peter feels each time the question is asked. However, do we or Peter really pay attention to the response that Jesus says after Peter answers?

We sometimes miss what Jesus is really saying, don’t we? Sometimes we long for something more…something that goes beyond our comprehension, yet it is extremely simple. We are called to take care of each other at each stage of life. When those, we are in fellowship regardless of their age, we are to feed and tend to them.  We go out on our way with such great intentions yet we can become so very misguided. Feeding and tending is not always just the physical it is also the Spiritual. In our brokenness, we can put the cart before the horse. 

I was reading an article the other day, and it reminded me as a pastor that we are not in church to be entertained. We are in church to be discipled to be a follower of Christ Jesus. The message that Jesus shred with us in this discussion with Peter. If we are not reaching out to those we know and those we meet…we are not living into the call that has been placed on each of our lives. May we grow into feeding the lambs, tending the sheep, and feeding the sheep.

May God bless, lead and guide us to being “real” disciples of the Lord we say we love.
