Acts 28:16-20, 30-31, Psalm 11:4-5,7;
John 21:20-25

Lord, what about him?

Was Peter asking about John’s future out of love for him or just out of curiosity? It’s not clear but the answer of Jesus most certainly is, “What concern is it of yours? You follow me.” Ultimately, we too have to do what Jesus asked of Peter, “Follow me.” Do what I ask you to do. What I ask of someone else might be quite different. We are not all called to do the same as a follower of Christ. Like Peter and like John we must be prepared to do what the Lord personally asks of us.
