Gathering in Christ

John 21:15-17
…Jesus said to him, “Feed My lambs.”
…He said to him, “Tend My sheep.”
…Jesus said to him, “Feed My sheep.”

Have we been nourishing the lives of people in the understanding of Jesus, or has our aim been to maintain our particular deposit of doctrine? According to Jesus, divine loyalty means that we feed His sheep in the knowledge of Him, not with our doctrine. Get rid of the idea that you must do good things, and remember what Jesus says, “He who believes in Me, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” In the Christian life, it is never “Do, do” but “Be, be, and I will do through you.” The type of man produced by the Spirit of Jesus is the one who bears a growing family likeness to Jesus.
