A Word


Peter turned and saw that the disciple whom Jesus loved was following them. (This was the one who had leaned back against Jesus at the supper and had said, “Lord, who is going to betray you?”) When Peter saw him, he asked, “Lord, what about him?” John 21:20-21

Peter was genuinely concerned about his friend John, but Jesus’ message about how he would die was only for Peter.

Have you ever read a verse and thought it was the best thing in the world? You then told someone else about it, but that person’s response was akin to “ho hum?” There’s a reason for that. God gives us words for us. Of course, God gives pastors words for their flocks, but He also gives words that are specific for them.

God’s word for us is just that: for us. It’s what we need at that time. Don’t be disappointed that others aren’t as enthusiastic about what He’s given you.

Instead, rejoice that He cares enough to give you a word.
