“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – John 21:17

TODAY’S WORD…

.

A third time Jesus said to Peter,

“Simon son of John, do you love Me?”

.

Peter became sad

because Jesus had asked him the third time, ‘Do you love me?’,

and so he said to Him,

“Lord, You know everything;

You know that I love You!”

.

– John 21:17 (GNT)

REFLECTION…

.

I put myself in Peter’s place.

There I am, in front of my Lord, Jesus;

He looks at me with His knowing, penetrating eyes

and He asks me directly, calling me by my name,

“…do you love Me?”

…..

If I truly believe that Jesus is the Son of God,

then like Peter, I am also fully aware

that He already knows what my reply will be,

and He also knows whether it is the truth…or not.

…..

When that moment arrives – and it shall –

will I be able to fix my eyes on my benevolent Lord,

who knows my human frailty,

and reply with humility and honesty, just like Peter did,

"Lord, You know everything;

You know that I love You.”

…..

Will I?

EPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Do I love You, Lord?

Please help me truly love You.
