He said to him, “Feed my lambs.” (John 21:15)
A pastor has to feed three kinds of sheep in his church with his sermons. The little lambs are new to the Christian faith
, so they must be virtually hand-fed for them to grow. There are also little sheep who are on their way in Christian discipleship, but they need special discernment for the Scriptures. Then there are mature sheep who want the full, robust teaching of the Word. Thank God for the pastor who has the sensitivity to know what to say to the lambs, little sheep, and mature sheep who all need the Word.
Living in the In-Between Times
As people following Christ, we all experience stop and go, arrival and departure, life and death. We know about living in between pivotal moments. It’s easy to believe that God is not at work in the ordinary. But He is! Through my book Living in the In-Between Times, you’ll discover how God speaks to you, how you can respond, and the significance of decisive commitment to the will of God.
