Daily Word Of God

John 21:20-24

Peter turned and saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following them — the one who had leant back close to his chest at the supper and had said to him, ‘Lord, who is it that will betray you?’ Seeing him, Peter said to Jesus, ‘What about him, Lord?’

Jesus answered, ‘If I want him to stay behind till I come, what does it matter to you? You are to follow me.’ The rumour then went out among the brothers that this disciple would not die. Yet Jesus had not said to Peter, ‘He will not die,’ but, ‘If I want him to stay behind till I come.’

This disciple is the one who vouches for these things and has written them down, and we know that his testimony is true.

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • God loves us unconditionally and He never fails to see the goodness in each of us. Hence His is never tired of urging us to follow, love and serve Him. Will I accept His invitation seriously today?


  • We are all different in various ways, yet He loves each one of us specially, personally, abundantly and at all times.


  • Reflect on the times when you have experienced God’s love. Did it empower you to believe in your goodness, strength and courage to answer to Jesus’ call of “Come follow me?”
