Bible Reading – John 21

“Do you love me?” This question seizes the reader’s attention. Just prior to Jesus’ murder, Peter avowed that he would lay down his life for Jesus (13:37). Of course, the Lord testified that Peter would deny him (13:38). Chapter 18 reveals that Jesus was right and Peter was wrong. Now imagine after all of this, Jesus asking Peter, “Do you love me?” Did you know that the rest of Peter’s life answers this question? Yes, he loved Jesus. So how does your life answer this question? Think about it.
