The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my sheep. John 21:17
Jesus asked Peter (The Rock) Three Times “Do You Love Me”? Jesus then told Peter to “Feed His Sheep”! Jesus chose Peter to begin “The Church”, Fast forward to the day of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit came down and baptized everyone, this was the first official service of “The Body of Christ”
So who are the sheep? And what is Peter supposed to feed them? The sheep are anyone who answers the call of Jesus. Jesus said the Sheep know my voice and he knows them (John 10:27) Remember Jesus also taught that when one lost sheep was found, all of Heaven rejoiced (Luke 15) The sheep are Gods children, and its our jobs to find and feed them
Jesus said “Man can’t live on bread alone, but every word that comes out of the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4) We need to “Feed the Sheep” The Word of God. People are in desperate need of spiritual nourishment, especially in the times we live in today. Its our job to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ, and “Feed The Sheep”
This is your calling also, as Jesus commanded at the Great Commission “Preach the Gospel to all The Nations” If you Love Jesus, then Feed His Sheep in Jesus Name Amen!
