Day 9: Feed my Lambs

Day 9 brings us to the point where Jen finds herself in a conversation with Jesus via the Scriptures:

John 21: 15-17


When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?”


“Yes, Lord,” [Peter] said, “you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.”


Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”


Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me? … “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my sheep.”

And this paragraph sticks out to me more than anything:

“You do feed souls, but twenty-four thousand of My sheep will die today because no one fed their bellies; eighteen thousand of them are My youngest lambs, starving today in a world with plenty of food to go around. If you truly love Me, you will feed My sheep. My people are crumbling and dying and starving, and you’re blessing blessed people and serving the saved.”

[Interrupted by Jen Hatmaker pg 18]

God is leading me to change my habits. How about you? What stuck out in today’s reading for you?

  1. Holy moly!!! The last page about smacked me!!! What am I doing?! Helping the already saved? He is showing me new things already, ironic I read this today after God pointed certain people out to me.


  2. Very straight-forward,huh? Spend all our time holding pacifiers for babies, and His sheep are dying all around us! Hurts my heart.


  3. It has really opened my eyes to look beyond those who choose not to change to help themselves and to direct my thoughts and actions to those who are hurting.
