Do We Love Jesus?

Do our actions and activity throughout our day reflect our love for Jesus?

John 21:17

Peter was distressed with Jesus for asking “Do you love me?” three times. But what if Jesus asked him 97 more times? Are we also bothered by Jesus asking if we love him?

Throughout our day when we face decisions that are for or opposed to Jesus we are also being asked if we love him. For if we love Jesus we would give ourselves completely over to him so that Jesus is fully reflecting from us.

Often, if not all the time, our actions show we do the opposite of God’s will. We choose the path devoid of love. If we remain attentive to God we will in those moments of making a decision hear Jesus ask us, “do you love me?”

It is a question that must always be asked as we follow the path set by Christ. For living in Christ and remaining in him means we enter into the love that is God the Father, God the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Serving God means nothing less than loving Jesus. In loving Jesus we enter into that Trinity union

As followers of Jesus, let us focus at least one time today in hearing Jesus ask us “do you love me” right before we make a decision, big or small.
