There are days when I don’t feel worthy to serve you dear Lord; days I feel distant from you; days I wonder how you could possibly use me for your Kingdom. The times I disappointed you loom large in my mind. Yet your forgiveness is even larger than any of my doubts and fears. You see in me things I can’t see in myself. You know me even more than I know myself. You created me. You have a plan for me at this moment in history. You invite me to join you around the charcoal fire and share a meal. You tell me I am worthy despite my faults. You entrust me as your servant. You give me the honor of serving in your Kingdom.
I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” – John 16:19 (NASB)
He *said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love Me?” Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, “Do you love Me?” And he said to Him, “Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You.” Jesus *said to him, “Tend My sheep.” – John 21:17
