Jesus Meets Us

Jesus Meets Us

The desire to lead like Jesus is a lofty aspiration. We are following a leader who is the only perfectly sinless, wholly righteous person who has ever lived. To follow in His footsteps is a daring and humbling ambition. We will stumble along the way, just as Peter did when he faltered. Just as He came to Peter, Jesus comes to us, recalling us to our relationship with Him and the call He has given us. Where do you need to hear Jesus’ words of hope and restoration today?

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

Prayer: Jesus, thank You for meeting us when we fail as leaders. Turn our eyes and hearts to You, and help us rise to our feet. In Your name we pray, amen.
