In this week's scripture, we hear Jesus ask Simon Peter, "Do you love me?" It had to be tough hearing Jesus ask such a question. Peter answered, "Lord, you know I love you." Though it may have upset Peter's heart a bit to hear Jesus ask not once but three times, it surely served the purpose of helping Peter evaluate the depth of his commitment to Christ. Jesus basically told Peter to go prove his love.
It sure is life-giving and heart-probing for our sake and the sake of others to get to overhear some of those conversations Jesus had with those early followers of his. Hopefully and prayerfully, we can make good on them. To God Be the Glory!
With you on the journey,
