From Death to Life
From Death to Life by George Hawtin. “Feed My sheep” was the commandment Jesus gave to Peter. There was but one commandment left to be given and it was the all important one, “Follow thou Me.” There is beautiful harmony between these two commandments because there is no possible way by which a man can feed the flock of God if he himself is following Christ afar off.
The scriptures record that, on the night when Jesus was betrayed and the howling, blood thirsty rabble came to seize Him and to take Him captive, a certain brave man drew his sword in defense of his Master, smiting the servant of the high priest and cutting off his ear. Matt. 26:51. Each of the four gospel writers bear record of this incident, but John alone identifies the sword wielding man as none other than Simon Peter, say-ing, “Then Simon Peter, having a sword, drew it, and smote the high priest’s servant, and cut off his right ear.” John 18:10. The servant’s name was Malchus.
From Death to Life
Simon Peter was no dastard in war. The fiery nature of his natural man was both ready and willing to face overwhelming and fearful odds. The mob who had come to take Jesus were armed men with swords and staves, determined to end forev-er the works of God’s Christ. Matthew described the mob sce-ne in these words: “And while He yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and elders of the people.” Matt. 26:47.
