Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 356

  1. “What is that to you?” (John 21:22).

It seems only natural to compare the road we must walk with that of others. After all, in a rationally-focused linear approach to life, like the one we embrace in the West, use of the same ingredients is expected to yield the same results. So if I’m connected to Christ and you’re connected to Christ, why is there a difference in our experience of Him? In other words, as Peter had queried, “What about him?” But in the journey of faith there can be no sameness of experience. Only when we must trust for the unknown can faith truly emerge. If I know the result of every action and every moment, where would I find room to demonstrate faith? So, Jesus looked at his troubled disciple and asked, “What is that to you?…Follow me.” So, yes, I can celebrate your story, but I must always remember that Jesus is writing a unique one with me too.
