John, chapter 21:15-17. I was so shocked, because the scriptures were talking straight to me.
If you read the scriptures, Jesus was asking Simon Peter, son of John, "Do you truly love me more than these?" Peter answered, "Yes Lord, you know I love you". Jesus said, "Feed my lambs."Again, Jesus said, "Peter, son of John do you truly love me?" He answered, "Yes Lord, you know that I love you." Jesus said, "Take care of my sheep."The third time He said to him, "Simon, son of John do you love me?" Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, "Do you love me?" He said, "Lord you know all things; you know that I love you." Jesus said, "Feed my sheep."Jesus is asking us today, maybe three times or more, "Do we really Love >him?" Probably our answers would be like Peter's ... "Yes Lord, you know that we love you." He is telling us, "Okay, if you love me, FEED MY LAMBS."
If there is something that really matters to Jesus, it is His sheep. That's why He came. It's because of you and me, so that we will be saved.
If we want to touch Jesus' heart, we need to take care of His sheep. That means we need to deny ourselves, follow Him and let Him show us how we should feed His lambs. Maybe, you are asking, "How should I feed Your lambs?" Well, you can do it in many ways. You can start interceding for others, you can start praying for your cities and nations, or serve the Lord in his temple. Get into the relationship with Jesus and He can tell you what you need to do. There is a lot to do to feed Jesus' Lambs. Not only to preach His word, but also to support ministries, take time with Him, helping those who are in need... I can go on and on and on. Let's take this as a day-to-day challenge; try to measure our lives and see if we truly love Him. My prayer is that we may serve Him and that we take time to fellowship with Him, so that he can direct us in what we should do.
His word in Isaiah 62:6-7 says " (I love this word, best for prayer warriors and you) I have posted watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem. (That's you and me) They will never be silent, day or night. You, who call on the Lord, give yourselves no rest. Give Him no rest untill He establishes Jerusalem (any need you have or any prayer requests, etc) and makes her the praise of the earth." This means. God is calling us to pray non-stop. Everyday. We should not give Him rest until He answers our prayers.
Be encouraged that there is nothing, hard when you involve God.
