Anglican Devotional 30 April 2022 ~ Do You Love Me?

The Daily Fountain Devotional of the Church Of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) 30 April 2022 ~ Do You Love Me?

TOPIC: Do You Love Me?

READ: John 21:15-19 (NKJV)

  1. So when they had eaten breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, [son] of Jonah, do you love Me more than these?” He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.” He said to him, “Feed My lambs.”
  2. He said to him again a second time, “Simon, [son] of Jonah, do you love Me?” He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.” He said to him, “Tend My sheep.”
  3. He said to him the third time, “Simon, [son] of Jonah, do you love Me?” Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, “Do you love Me?” And he said to Him, “Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You.” Jesus said to him, “Feed My sheep.
  4. “Most assuredly, I say to you, when you were younger, you girded yourself and walked where you wished; but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will gird you and carry [you] where you do not wish.”
  5. This He spoke, signifying by what death he would glorify God. And when He had spoken this, He said to him, “Follow Me.”

THE MESSAGE:

Jesus asked Peter three times whether he really loved Him; to the point that Peter became angry at the repeated questions. In any case, there was a serious burden in the heart of the Master – who would shepherd the flock He was leaving behind? Peter had in a couple of hours earlier failed the acid test: He had led the people back to fishing.Jesus knew that wherever our affection is, our commitment must as a matter of fact, be there. Love for Him would change our worldview so also love for the world would estrange us from Him.

Our commitment to obeying God’s word, contending for the faith, being at the post of service and loving other brethren are all directly related to the amount of love for Jesus that has consumed our hearts. It is important to note that this type of love is borne out of experiential knowledge of His personality. We must have heard Him, seen His glory with our eyes, looked upon His mercies and handled His benevolence, to enter this realm of love (1John 1:1). And no man climbs this height of sublime love and denies His Master the desired undivided attention.
