“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 of Jesus, we each have an assignment to execute in God’s plan.

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 by our common Lord.

If we don’t see it, what is that to us?  We do see Jesus, and it is Jesus we must follow.

Anything more is a diversion, and anything less is a distraction.  Stay focused.  – Luther
