Feed Yourself

 

How do you eat?

Do you scrape the fork on your top teeth?

Do you smack or chew with your mouth closed?

When you eat, does your food eat you or do you eat it?

Messy Mondays-Making Time for God

John 21:15-17  When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Feed my lambs.” He said to him a second time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Tend my sheep.”  He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, “Do you love me?” and he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep.

Jesus told Peter to ‘Feed my lambs’

Lambs grow up to be sheep, and sheep.

Sheep eat 2-4.5 pounds of food a day.

Sheep poop 2-6.5 pounds a day.

The mission statement of a church I served in was to equip people to ‘become successful, self feeding, mature, fully devoted followers of Christ.”

Feed yourself! Then feed others! Read and study the Bible and then share what you learned with your friends.

We should build a friendship with God, daily, and God is to be part of every moment of our lives, in our actions, in our homes, in our school, in our conversation. We hang out with our friends having fun, in stillness, in video games, in sports. Jesus is always there and wants us to be conscious of Him there in all things.

We need to feed ourselves and then help others. Young believers need help and encouragement. Help in learning how to read the Bible, how to study the Bible, how to pray and find how they best build friendship with God. When they stumble we don’t accuse them, we lift them up.

John 10:27 My sheep listen to My voice, I know them and they follow Me.

Will you listen to His voice today and follow Him?
