Do You Love Jesus?

It’s BIG QUESTIONS WEEK here on GUWG where all week long we’ve been looking at deep, thought-provoking ?s from the Bible.

Jesus was about to leave Earth. He grilled out with his disciples one last time and then he took Peter aside and asked him this question:

“Do you love me?”

“Yes, Lord,” Peter replied. “You know I love you.”

“Then feed my lambs,” Jesus said, Then he repeated the same question:

“Do you love me?”

“Yes, Lord,” Peter said. “You know I love you.”

“Then take care of my sheep,” Jesus said. Then he asked a third time:

“Do you love me?”

Peter was hurt that Jesus asked the question a third time. “Lord,” he said, “You know everything. You know that I love you.”

Jesus replied, “Then feed my sheep.” He then concluded his remarks with this command:

“Follow me.”

Jesus sees deeeeeeep within our hearts. What if he asked you the same question he asked Peter? It’s the ultimate question in the universe.

How would you respond? Would your actions back up your words?

Ask the Holy Spirit to fill you to overflowing with love so that your answer will always be a resounding “YES!” to that question. And then follow Jesus every step of the day and take care of his sheep until he returns to take them home.
