I tell you the truth. When you were young, you tied your own belt and went where you wanted. But when you are old, you will put out your hands and another person will tie you. That person will lead you where you don't want to go." (Jesus said this to show how Peter would die to give glory to God.) Then Jesus said to Peter, "Follow me!"


-- John 21:18-19 (ERV)


KEY THOUGHT:
There was a time when Peter thought he was ready for anything. He wasn't. Jesus told him so. Peter argued with Jesus. Jesus was right, of course. But Peter has been humbled by his own failure and now realizes that the course of discipleship begins with humility. He is ready to follow, even if his path will lead to his own death in a way similar to Jesus. In fact, Jesus lets Peter know that his future is directly tied to the crucifixion of his Lord. Yet Jesus still says to him, "Follow me!" You and I don't know exactly what the future holds, but Jesus looks at us and asks us to follow, even if it means a Cross. Let's follow!


TODAY'S PRAYER:
Give me courage and strength, O God, so that I can follow Jesus no matter what challenges, difficulties, or hardships come my way. Please, never ever let me outlive my love for your Son or for you. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
