February 24, 2021 – Control/Direction
Jesus foreshadowed to Peter that he would die for the sake of the Gospel. Peter’s response to is ask about John’s fate. Will he also have to die for the Gospel? Jesus reminds Peter that it is not up to Peter; it is God’s will. If he wants John to live, he will live. We often want control. We want to set the direction of our life. But Jesus reminds us not to focus on what we want or what God has called others to do, but rather to what God wants of us.
