Our Concern

John 21:21-22. So when Peter saw him, he asked Jesus, “Lord, what about him?” Jesus replied, “If I want him to live until I come back, what concern is that of yours? You follow me!”

One of the questions Peter asked Jesus during those 40 days was about what someone else should be doing.  Jesus basically told Peter to be concerned about His own obedience to Him.  We are so prone to compare our own actions with those of another.  We think if they don’t do something we don’t need to do it either or if they do something we should do it also.  We need to listen to Jesus’ reply to Peter.  We need to pay attention to what He tells us to do and follow through in obedience.  If we choose to compare ourselves with anyone it should be with Jesus.  We are to be imitators of Him, not of others.  Jesus walked in total obedience to all God told Him to do.  Our question is evident here.  My concern is me and I fall far short.
