18 "I tell you the truth, when you were young, you were able to do as you liked; you dressed yourself and went wherever you wanted to go. But when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and others will dress you and take you where you don't want to go." 19Jesus said this to let him (Peter His disciple) know by what kind of death he would glorify God. Then Jesus told him, "Follow me."
20 Peter turned around and saw behind them the disciple Jesus loved (John)—the one who had leaned over to Jesus during supper and asked, "Lord, who will betray you?" 21Peter asked Jesus, "What about him, Lord?"
22 Jesus replied, "If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? As for you, follow me."23 So the rumor spread among the community of believers that this disciple wouldn't die. But that isn't what Jesus said at all. He only said,"If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you?"
24 This disciple is the one who testifies to these events and has recorded them here. And we know that his account of these things is accurate.
*In (Verse 22) Jesus is illustrating so beautifully I may add, what one individual may do, is not what another individual is to do [The Goose and Gander effect].
*In (Verse 23) The words illustrate very nicely how, many people tend to think they know what is right for others but indeed are very wrong
*In (Verse 24) John Jesus' beloved Disciple, illustrates that what was chosen for him he accepted and lived it.
The advice the Lord gives me and I share with you ALL:
'You can all go around worrying why He/She isn't in the same circumstances you are in, or you can look to me, and trust that whatever circumstance and situation you are in, I have personally placed you there for your own wellfare and benefit.' Amen! *Food for thought*
