Day Eight: 10 Questions for God – What about him?

Peter asked Jesus, “What about him, Lord?” John 21:21

As Jesus and Peter walked along the beach in conversation about God’s will, Peter turned around and saw his friend John following close behind. Maybe John just wanted to see if Jesus would talk with him also or maybe like a younger sibling he was simply eavesdropping!

When Peter saw John suddenly the question came to him that often comes to us all: “What about him? Why woIMG-20130112-00542n’t he have to experience the same things I do? ” In love Jesus turns Peter’s focus back where it needed to be: “If I will…”

As Americans we are raised on fairness. We grow up with it in the home, we hear and see it in the media every day and it is almost written into our DNA! But our God in his grace does much better than being fair with us: He gives us His grace. What a wonderful rest will enter into the DNA of our soul once we settle the matter of grace and His will.

The matter of what others will or won’t have to do will fade away and the eyes of our heart will begin to see Jesus clearly as the true lover of our soul!

Open the eyes of my heart Lord Open the eyes of my heart

I want to see You I want to see You

To see You high and lifted up Shining in the light of Your glory

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
