Question of the Day: Lord, what about him?
Answer: This question was asked by Peter to Yeshua about the Apostle John. Peter has just been asked three times by Yeshua (in His resurrection), "Peter, do you love me?" And three times Peter answered, "Lord, You know I do." And three times Yeshua told him, "Then feed My sheep."
It's strange to me that the next thing out of Peter's mouth is, "What about him?" Yeshua's response is enlightening. Basically, Yeshua tells Peter, "My relationship with someone else is My business." Then Yeshua simply says, John 21:22b "You follow Me!"
What else do we need to hear? Yeshua is calling us up to Himself and saying to each of us, "You follow Me." We want to make it complicated when it isn't. These are the days to destroy every stronghold that separates us from our Savior.
2 Corinthians 10:3-5 "For though we walk in the flesh, we do not wage war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not fleshly but powerful through God for the tearing down of strongholds. We are tearing down false arguments and every high-minded thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God. We are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Messiah."
