  1. 1. John 21:15-16 When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, ‘Simon son of John, do you truly love Me more than these?’ ‘Yes, Lord,’ he said, ‘You know that I Love you.’ Jesus said, ‘Feed My lambs.’ Again Jesus said, ‘Simon son of John, do you truly love Me?’ He answered, ‘Yes, Lord, You know that I love you.’ Jesus said, ‘Take care of My sheep.’ www.networkbible.org
  2. 2. John 21:17 The third time He said to him, ‘Simon son of John, do you love Me?’ Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, ‘Do you love Me?’ He said, “Lord, You know all things; You know that I love you.’ Jesus said, ‘Feed My sheep. www.networkbible.org
  3. 3. John 21:18-19 I tell you the truth, when you were younger you dressed yourself and went where you wanted; but when you are old you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go.’ Jesus said this to indicate the kind of death by which Peter would glorify God. Then He said to him, ‘Follow Me!’ www.networkbible.org
  4. 4. John 21:20-22 Peter turned and saw that the disciple whom Jesus loved was following them. (This was the one who had leaned back against Jesus at the supper and had said, ‘Lord, who is going to betray You?’) When Peter saw him, he asked, ‘Lord, what about him?’ Jesus answered, ‘If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? You follow Me.’ www.networkbible.org
  5. 5. Passion can be CULTIVATED, and, if neglected, can also ERODE over time. Without passion knowledge becomes UNAPPLIED learning; rituals MEANINGLESS or FADING memories of a past phase. Cultivating your passion for Jesus begins with HUMILITY.
  6. 6. You cannot PASSIONATELY PURSUE God and the world at the same time. Jesus’s question is not to create COMPETITIVE COMPARISIONS, but to teach HUMILITY. ADOPTING Jesus’s interests as our interests also helps to cultivate passion.
  7. 7. The WORKS will vary from one person to another, but the MOTIVE of love should be the same. Cultivating passion requires keeping your FOCUS on Jesus in order to FOLLOW Him.
  8. 8. Our passion is revealed to the extent that we are willing to FOLLOW Him. Passion is cultivated as we keep our EYES on Jesus and diminishes when we turn our GAZE on others.
