Our Work

John 12:17 ~ Jesus said unto him, “Feed my sheep.”
Just as the question in this verse – “Do you love me?” – reminds us of the great commandment to love God with everything that is in us, the imperative of the verse – “Feed my sheep” – reminds us that there is a second great commandment to love our neighbors as ourselves. According to Jesus, those two commandments summarize the Law and the Prophets. So His dialogue with Peter before the other disciples here is an appropriate closure to His ministry in the Gospel of John. It, too, is a summary of the Law and the Prophets, a summary of every believer’s call to ministry – to love Jesus and to feed His sheep.
Are we passionate about the welfare – physical and spiritual – of others? Do we tend to one another with the same concern with which the Great Shepherd tends to us?
