“If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? Follow thou me.” (John 21:22 ) These are the words that Jesus spoke to his disciples concerning John who is called the beloved, or the disciple whom Jesus loved (John 21:20). John was the longest living disciple. The Romans tried to boil him in a vat of hot boiling oil, but he wouldn’t boil, because the Lord had another special task for him to do. So the Romans whisked him off to a prison on the island of Patmos, thinking they could keep him silenced and that he couldn’t do much harm and spread the Word, but he got the Book of Revelation there which has gone on to witness to countless numbers of souls ever since 90 A.D. The point is, concentrate on your own personal relationship with Jesus and follow him. It doesn’t matter what other people think, we need to be concerned about what Jesus thinks. “Not with eye service, as man pleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;” ( Ephesians 6:6).The very fact that you are still alive proves that God is not finished with you yet, here on this earth. He has a special calling and job for you to fulfill in your life, and someday soon we will all see Jesus, and that will make it worth it all.
Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour.I believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
