You are Invited

Jesus said, “Feed My sheep. Very truly I tell you, when you were younger you dressed yourself and went where you wanted; but when you are old you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go.” Jesus said this to indicate the kind of death by which Peter would glorify God. John 21:18-19

Jesus said this to Peter to foretell the kind of death he would experience. But today you are invited to consider Jesus words, ‘… when you are old …’ What does old age mean to you? Who do you know who is experiencing old age? How are you able to help your loved ones who are old? How do you feel about growing old yourself? Speak to Jesus about your thoughts and feelings, your hopes and fears. Listen. What does He say to you in reply?

May God bless you with an old age that brings glory to Him.

My love in life is to encourage others to deepen their relationship with God. I write devotional material, stories and small group studies with that in mind. I live in South Africa and also love spending time in the bush, bird watching and walking. I have moved to the coast and am enjoying the green spaces and beautiful vistas that surround me, reminding me of God's grace every day.
