41. Be shepherds of his flock.

"Feed my lambs ... Take care of my sheep."( John 21:15-17) Surprisingly, the only question Jesus asked Peter during his job interview was, "Simon son of John, do you love me more than these" (meaning others who have desired the job) and did not ask for his theological credentials. Anybody who truly doesn't love Jesus is not fit for service because they will end up scattering his flocks. Dissatisfied with the shepherds of Israel, the Lord said, "I myself will search for my sheep and look after them" (Ezekiel 34:11) and it was fulfilled in Christ when he called himself the 'Good Shepherd'. (John 10:11) But before his ascension, the Chief Shepherd had to entrust his flocks to trustworthy men who will feed and look after them. 'Keep watch over ourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the Church of God which he bought with his own blood.' (Acts 20:28) Jesus doesn't want to know about your credentials but whether you love him enough, not to hurt his sheep. You are not being appointed to service by men but by the Holy Spirit. 'And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.'( 1 Peter 5:4) Do you desire to do this noble task?
