|.Jesus wants to know if we love HIm|
May the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with us!‘
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 21:17 NIV
Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him a third time if he loved Him. Peter knew that Jesus knew all things. He had predicted that Peter will deny Him three times before the cock crowed. Peter was speaking from experience. If Jesus knows all things why would He ask Peter a question that He knew the answer? Jesus loves to hear the sound of our voices say ‘I love You Lord’ He loves it when we sing hymns to His glory. He also wanted Peter to be sure of his forgiveness. Jesus’s instruction to Peter is also for us who love Him – Feed My sheep.” See Matthew 25:40 if you do not know who are His sheep.
Have a Blessed Day! Follow Him! One Less Day to Go!
