“When Peter saw him (John), he asked, ‘Lord, what about him?’ Jesus answered, ‘If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? You must follow me.’” (John 21:21-22, NIV)
As disciples, our heavenly Father has an assignment for each of us.
It is humanly natural to compare, to contrast, and to compete — but such characteristics have no place in the fellowship of God’s people. We who belong to God must, instead, strive to cooperate, to collaborate, and to cheer-on all others working with God — even if we don’t comprehend what it is they have been assigned to do by our Lord.
If we don’t see it, what is that to us? We do see Jesus, and it is Him we must follow.
Anything more is a diversion, and anything less is a distraction. Stay focused. – Luther
