What are you doing to serve others because you love Jesus?
Peter’s journey toward servant leadership was filled with starts and stops. Peter loved Jesus, but He wanted to follow Jesus in His own strength, which translated into leading in His own strength. Jesus knew that Peter’s failure would be the pathway to His transformation into a servant leader. He needed others to know this, too, so after privately restoring Peter, He publicly restored Him to leadership. Love for Jesus is the primary qualification for servant leaders. What are you doing to serve others because you love Jesus?
The third time he said to him, "Simon son of John, do you love me?" Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, "Do you love me?" He said, "Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you." Jesus said, "Feed my sheep.”—John 21:17
