Jesus calls us differently

True Discipleship is properly exercised only in a humble acceptance of whatever destiny the Lord has reserved for each disciple who loves Him.

Jesus calls us differently

Two distinguished apostles such as Peter and John are at the centre of the discourse in today’s gospel. Peter's question seeks to make a comparison between his own following and that of the other disciple.

But Jesus' reply to Peter's question seems to show that any sort of comparison is wrong. “If I want him to stay behind till, I come, how does it matter to you? You are to follow me”.

Perhaps, Peter wants to know whether they have a similar end but Jesus seems to indicate that each one has a different mode of witnessing. The only necessary obligation is to follow Jesus.

Just as the Lord's words to Peter ended with the injunction, “follow me”, so must each Christian repeat that command to him or herself and embrace it for his or her own life and destiny.
