Lovest Thou Me / Feed My Lambs

Welcome Back My Friend. I trust that I may congratulate you for waiting! You're strengthening your self discipline by waiting and it's a great advantage to you!

Psalms 62:5

My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from Him.

Lovest Thou Me Asked Thrice
Feed My Lambs Bible Verse Purpose

Greetings, my new friend ... I have chosen to divide the title of this step in two on purpose to show there are two different important parts of what Jesus spoke to Peter. One was a question, "Lovest thou me" and the other a statement, "Feed my lambs."

John 21:15-17

15 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, Lovest Thou Me more than these? He saith unto Him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.
16 He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, Lovest Thou Me? He saith unto Him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, Lovest Thou Me? Peter was grieved because He said unto him the third time, Lovest Thou Me? And he said unto Him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

Feed the Sheep Bible Point of Interest ... Many wonder why Jesus spoke the Words three times. Even Peter seemed a little grieved that Jesus had said it thrice. Hmmmmmm, "thrice" ... Now, where have I heard that word thrice before? Oh, yes, I remember now. It was in a story about Peter and Jesus:

Matthew 26:75

And Peter remembered the Word of Jesus, which said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And he went out, and wept bitterly.

Lovest Thou Me Brought Tears
Feed My Lambs Bible Verse Fears

Perhaps it was a gentle reminder to Peter that he did deny Jesus thrice and to remember these words. Peter did run off when the wolves came and this request made three times may have been a way by which to say that Peter was to stay and protect the sheep this time. At either rate, Jesus said it thrice to reveal the importance of the words ... Feed my lambs.

Does it mean that Peter and the Apostles were responsible for making sure the sheep had food?

Matthew 6:11

Give us this day our daily bread.

Matthew 4:4

But He answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Feed the Sheep Bible tidbit of Truth ... The food they were to provide these sheep with was the Word of God. Who are the sheep that are to be fed this Word of God? The sheep are the children of God. When one feels called to serve God and begins to obey the feed my lambs statement from the Lord, one can oft times become overzealous and blinded by pride. This occurred with the Pharisees and it is written that they ended up making it too hard for God's children to enter Heaven by the heavy demands that they placed on them, meanwhile they, themselves were secretly living in sin.

Matthew 23:13

But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the Kingdom of Heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.

Do you Lovest Thou Me
Feed My Lambs Bible Verse Warning

We are all sinners. It may be that a persons sins are different from the sins of another but how is it that we can judge others' sins and think for one second that God is not going to judge us for ours?

Matthew 7:1-2

1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

If and when you feel called to respond to the "feed my lambs" request by sharing Truth with these precious lost souls and troubled Christians, one should always keep in mind that these are not your children, they belong to God.

Feed the Sheep Bible Danger ... It is not your place to discipline or verbally abuse His children. You are merely a hired servant required to watch over His children. Kind of like a babysitter who has had His children placed in your care. Beware the child crying to the Father of your verbal abuse and the Father hiring another in your place.

God is very aware that these lost sheep have not been shown the way to Truth as you may have been but that does not give you the right to scold them in some vain attempt to uplift yourself. Remember ... Lovest Thou Me, Feed My Lambs. This means you are serving the Lord. Keep that in mind as you feed His sheep.

It is Truth that God does get angry and expresses His anger thru His prophets but I tell you a Truth ... It is best to make sure it is Him expressing this anger thru you to His child and not just you ... Lest the cries of His child enter into the mind and Heart of their Father. A bear beholding someone harming it's cubs will be deemed gentle, in comparison.

Here is some Feed the Sheep Bible Wisdom ... When one that has been called finds that one of His children is in need of medicine, one should not try and force it down their throat with words of anger. You would not do so to your own child if they were taken by a plague or sickness. You would try and find the best tasting, yet effective medicine that you could. You may even play little airplane games saying "Zoooooom, Zooooooom here comes the airplane," as you gently slide the spoon of medicine into the child's mouth. This way, the child willingly takes the medicine.

God is well aware of the "handicaps" of His lost children who have been kidnapped by the enemy and enticed with worldly trends to stay there. God is also well aware that you are or were one of those souls as well. It may be that He has shown you the way to Truth, but that does not give you the right to portray yourself as being better than the child that is still caught up in the worldly web.

John 8:7

He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

Feed My Lambs Bible Verse Tips

It is very sad that these individuals, who consider themselves to be better than another of God's children (even though, they know in their hearts that they were also forgiven of their sins of the past, and received God's Grace and still sin) and that these people would find it necessary to judge another, in some vain attempt to appear to uplift themselves.

It was some self proclaimed religious leaders, back in Jesus' day, that were constantly following Jesus around quoting law. They became so afraid of losing their high places, that they devised a plan and had Jesus crucified ... They used laws to do it. They claimed they were doing a God service.

God service huh? That's a hoot. God does not seek those who would condemn His children. God does not seek those who would keep them encaged by fear and doubt by making the path to Heaven appear unattainable. God does not seek those who would make His children walk away from the faith feeling inadequate and unworthy of the Grace that He has provided those souls at such a dear cost.

Feed the Sheep Bible Truth ... God seeks those who are sensitive to the needs of His children. God seeks those few understanding shepherds that know that we all fall short and we all fall down. That the Christian walk is one very tough path and that we all walk it together and that fellowship is one of the best tools we have to help one another. God seeks caring and loving souls that seek only to help the lost souls get home. Those that seek only to bring in His sheep.

2 Timothy 2:24-26

24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,
25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;
26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
