“I LOVE THEE” Part 1 : Wednesday : February 3

John 21:15

"so when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simeon Peter, Simeon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto Him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He said unto him Feed my lambs"

The above test of love occurred after the resurrection of Christ. The test was necessary in view of the denial of Peter to Christ. Peter had been under the teaching of Jesus all along in the Ministry. Jesus wanted Peter to cultivate the kind of love that will flow to others; who were looking unto Jesus. (Those Jesus called HIS Lambs)

It was time for love test. Jesus asked the question after the dinner so as to get the best out of Peter. Why this question to Peter and not any other disciple? There might be two reasons : 1) Jesus had a bigger assignment for Peter. 2) Jesus had cause to suspect the heart of love of Peter.

Often times, Christians may be tested in order to be assured of our love for Jesus. Peter had failed the test of loving Jesus in the past, but the answer “I love thee” was to stage a return to the first love. Peter wanted to settle in again with Jesus. The question to us today is not whether we fear, admire, or honor Jesus. The question is do we love Jesus more than these things – our agenda?

Without true love for Christ, we cannot have true love others. Let the love of God flow, in Jesus Name. Amen.
