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 must follow me.” – John 21:20-22

As Jesus is telling Peter the manner in which he will die Peter looks over to John and asks what will happen to him. How often do we want to compare our path with Christ to others? Jesus tell us to not do this. Each of are challenged to follow Him. To ultimately trust in the Great Shepherd is to listen to His voice and follow Him. As the hymn says, “Though none go with me, still I will follow; No turning back, no turning back.” This is the path of Christ follower.
