As I prayed through this Gospel this morning I sensed the Lord saying to me, “Do you love me?” I am able to say “yes, Lord, I do love you.” But, do I say that glibly? Do I really mean it? How do I mean it? Does the way I live my life reflect the fact that I love Him?
When Peter stressed his love for Jesus, the Lord gave him a mission, "feed my sheep". Because we love Jesus we too have a mission - to witness to His love by the way we live our lives. “Yes, Lord, I want to love you with all my heart. I want to love you more than anything or anyone. Please fill my heart with the grace to truly love you - and to serve you."
When Jesus asks you, “Do you love me?” How do you respond?
