JOHN 21:20-25

20 Turning his head, Peter noticed the disciple Jesus loved following right behind.
21 When Peter noticed him, he asked Jesus, "Master, what's going to happen to him?"
22 Jesus said, "If I want him to live until I come again, what's that to you? You — follow me."
23 That is how the rumor got out among the brothers that this disciple wouldn't die. But that is not what Jesus said. He simply said, "If I want him to live until I come again, what's that to you?"
24 This is the same disciple who was eyewitness to all these things and wrote them down. And we all know that his eyewitness account is reliable and accurate.
25 There are so many other things Jesus did. If they were all written down, each of them, one by one, I can't imagine a world big enough to hold such a library of books.

Kate's Notes:  (One Year With Jesus)....Early church history reports that after John spent several years as an exile on the island of Patmos, he returned to Ephesus where he died as an old man, near the end of the first century.

DON'T COMPARE

      Peter asked Jesus how John would die. Jesus replied that Peter should not concern himself with that. We tend to compare our lives to others, whether to rationalize our own level of devotion to Christ or to question God's justice. Jesus responds to us as He did to Peter; "What is that to you?  You follow Me." When you follow Christ and live as He wants you to, there is no need to compare yourself with others. Peeople make comparisons for many reasons. Some point out others' flaws in order to feel better about themselves. Others simply want reassurance that they are doing well. When you are tempted to compare, look at Jesus Christ. His example will inspire you to do your very best, and His loving acceptance will comfort you when you fall short of your expectations.
