Foundations in Leadership 1.1 For South Columbia Baptist Church Awana

This is handout 1.1 in Foundations to Leadership. I wrote it to help develop the Youth Leaders (LITs) in our Awana Club. This hand-out and others like it are given the the kids at the end of club to take home and review during the week. They write out answers to the questions which they then discuss with a mentor, and return to club. I do not object to it being copied and used.

Foundations of Leadership 1.1 “Why Leadership?”

When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you truly love me more than these?’
“Yes, Lord,” He said, “you know that I love you.”
Jesus said “Feed my lambs.”
Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you truly love me?”
He answered, “Yes Lord, you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.”
The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”
Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, Lord you know all things; you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Feed my sheep…”
John 21:15-17, NIV.

These verses above are from the time after the resurrection when Jesus met the disciples.
Note: “More than these,” may refer to the other disciples or his possessions- fishing boat, etc.

1. What was the big question Jesus asked Peter?

2. Why do you think Jesus asked Peter this question 3 times?

3. What was Peter’s answer?

4. Why do you think Jesus asked Peter this question?

5. What command did Jesus give Peter?

6. How does “take care of my sheep” and “feed my lambs,” show love for Jesus?

7. If this is our standard how can you show love for Jesus?

8. List three ways you can take care of Jesus sheep and feed his lambs?
