“Feed my sheep” John 21:17
One evening while reading of Oswald Chambers devotionals, I read and reread one of his writings relating to the story of Jesus and Peter after one of His last suppers here on earth. Jesus asked Peter several times, “Do you love me?” And each time Peter answered, “You know I do, Lord.” And Jesus responded each time,” Feed my sheep”.
Feeding (teaching , discipling and mentoring) the followers of Jesus is of utmost important to Jesus. When I read and reread this devotional, I was so thankful for all of YOU — working with the ministry of Thoughts About God. Writers, mentors, prayer-partners, donors, administrators, data entry, webmaster, recruiters – all of you are “feeding the sheep of Jesus”. Thank you for doing what Christ says is so important. It is so rewarding to be able to win, build and teach people worldwide.
We also rejoice when we see how many people use these messages to teach others (2 Timothy 2:2), as shown in the email below.
“I love reading and learning from all your published sermons. it really helps me and my husband to teach our children. I would love to read a lot more. Thank you and we love you.”
We, as staff, thank you so much for being a partner with us.
