Tend His Sheep

May 29, 2020

Tend my sheep…(John 21:15-19)

Today we see some of the first signs of the passing of the torch from Jesus to Peter and the disciples. Jesus has been hinting that He will not be with them much longer. There was still much work to be done. His post-resurrection time on earth was nearing an end, so it was clear that others would need to continue His work.

Jesus was clear. He asked Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” When Peter replied in the affirmative, Jesus gave His command: “Tend my sheep.”

Jesus’ message: If you love me, you will continue my work.

As faith-filled people, we do many things to strengthen our relationship with Jesus. But nothing we do is as important as continuing the work He started while here on this earth.

If we love Him, we will tend His sheep.
