“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 loving and penetrating eyes

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

“…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.

I also believe that whatever my answer is,

Jesus knows whether it is the truth…or not.

.

When that moment arrives – and it will –

will I be able to look at the Lord

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

“Lord, You know that I love You” ?

.

Will I?

.

Do I?

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

Jesus, my Lord,

I believe You are the Son of the Living God,

the great I AM.

.

Lord, I know You love me,

I know You died on that Cross – for me.

But…do I love You back?

.

You know everything, my Lord,

You know me inside out.

Please send Your Holy Spirit upon me, Lord,

to teach me how to truly love You.

.

Come, Holy Spirit. Come.
