26th May 2012 John 21:20-end (this is why I pray)

Peter turned and saw that the disciple whom Jesus loved was following them. (This was the one who had leaned back against Jesus at the supper and had said, “Lord, who is going to betray you?”) When Peter saw him, he asked, “Lord, what about him?”. Jesus answered, “If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? You must follow me.” Because of this, the rumor spread among the believers that this disciple would not die. But Jesus did not say that he would not die; he only said, “If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you?”. This is the disciple who testifies to these things and who wrote them down. We know that his testimony is true. Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.

This is the great frustration I feel when I read the Bible; what else did Jesus say?

There are so many questions I would ask Jesus, so many things I'd love to just hear his opinion on, and that is why I pray. In prayer I hear from Jesus and I come closer to him, it's the chats I can't imagine missing out on.
