Todayâ€™s message is taken from John 21:18-23 and is titled â€śJesus Recommissions His Disciples â€“.Follow Meâ€ť
We have seen in previous messages that John 21 is a fitting epilogue where we are given a parallel to the Great Commission passages in the other gospels. We have seen that Jesus demonstrates to his disciples that they are to fish for men and feed His sheep. We now come to the third section of the chapter where Jesus commands â€śfollow me.â€ť
â€śFollow meâ€ť is the command to disciples of Jesus. In this message, weâ€™ll consider three questions: Why follow Jesus, How do you follow Jesus, and Where do you follow Jesus. We will learn from Jesusâ€™ dialogue with Peter about his future life, as compared to that of John, that we arenâ€™t to compare ourselves with others, but follow Jesus on terms He determines.
