Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 354

  1. “Lord, what about him?” (John 21:21).

It’s a question we’ve all asked. When comparing our experiences and relationship with God, we want an explanation as to why another believer’s experience is different. Why did they get healed? Why did they receive miraculous provision. Frankly our real question is usually, “why didn’t we…?” Most folks confuse fair treatment with identical treatment. If one child gets an ice cream cone, they all should. If one action brings a negative result, then every such action should receive the same response. We want to make sense of every moment, and identical treatment is one way we seek out. But this is a relationship, and God has deeper purposes for each of our lives. So your blessing comes when I’m learning sacrifice, and your good news comes on a day when there isn’t any for me. Jesus will respond to Peter’s question with, “follow Me.” That’s the decision we must make. Our journey with God is not a calculated path of steps and results that can be charted on a clipboard. It’s a life where faith is taught and grown within us. It’s a relationship where trust is built, often through the moments that don’t add up. So your step today will look different than the one I’m expected to take. “Just follow Me…” Jesus whispers.
