Who is your main mentor in life?

John 21:19

“Follow me.”

+++

The resurrected Jesus asked Peter three times if he loved him…and each time Peter told Jesus that he did.

And each time Jesus told Peter that if he loved him…then Peter would feed and tend his sheep.

Then Jesus simply said to Peter, “Follow me.”

We sometimes get caught up in all kinds of religious rules and regulations as if those were the only things that mattered.

Believing in rules is meaningless if it doesn’t lead you to compassionate and just action.

When you get down to the basics…Jesus simply asks each of us to follow him.

He is our mentor.

We are called to model his example…surrendering our egoic desires and reaching out to help those in need.

Allow this experience to transform you so that you can put on the mind of Christ.

As St. Paul put it, “Do not conform yourselves to this age but be transformed by the renewal of your mind” (Romans 12:2).

This is being a Christian.
