Welcome to this series of devotional posts based on ‘Roots & Wings’ an integrative Bible study for discipleship, written by Pastor Edmund Chan, our guest speaker at RISE, QB Convention 2015. Our thoughts will be based around five areas: our human weakness, the resulting problem, the radical re-orientation, the critical need, and the empowered life of Roots & Wings.
TOPIC: Living for what really matters (Biblical Values)
The critical need: Making wise choices. (John 21:15-17)
Life is full of choices. Peter earlier made strong declarations of his desire to stand by Jesus—only to deny him three times. In this passage Jesus asks him three times, “do you love me?”. With humility and without the same strength as previously, Peter affirms his choice to “Love Jesus”. He is recommissioned to carry on Jesus’ work on earth. The most important choice for all of us is to follow Jesus.
