Man Overboard!

I’m Dr. Bob, and for just a Mentoring Minute, I want to call your attention to a biblical case of “man overboard.” Of course, I am referring to Peter. He had a reputation of impulsively going overboard on many occasions. At times, as in the case of cutting off the ear of the high priest’s servant, he went “overboard” in a negative way. However, there is one occasion when Peter went overboard that is worthy of our imitation. I am speaking, of course, about when he saw the resurrected Christ preparing a meal on the shore. Peter was so excited, he could not wait to get to Jesus. Up he jumped and then, with a splash, in he jumped, swimming joyfully from the boat to the shore. John 18:10a (NKJV) says, “Then Simon Peter, having a sword, drew it and struck the high priest’s servant, and cut off his right ear…” It would be wonderful if we could feel the same excitement every time we gather to have communion with Christ. Next time you gather with others for communion, remember Peter. Tell yourself, “Man (or “Woman”) overboard – that’s me!” Here’s the point. As you worship with others in communion with Christ, let yourself go. Jump in and honor Christ with everything you have. He will be pleased to touch your heart. . I’m Dr. Bob. I have been a “man overboard” for years. I highly recommend it to you. You can listen to my previous Mentoring Minutes at www.mentoringministry.com/blogs.
