Do You Love Me More?

John 21:15| “When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, DO YOU LOVE ME MORE THAN THESE?” “Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.”

The Spirit is asking a question right now: “Do you love me more than these?” This is something that only you can answer. And it’s interesting after Peter answered He then gave Him instructions. 

A few things I see in this. One is that you can’t love God without obeying Him. If you love God He will give you instructions, sort of a way to prove your love. He doesn’t just take your word for it. As He knows people honor Him with their lips but their heart is far from Him. 

Think about yourself for a moment. Do you just believe someone when they say they love you? Or do you watch what they do in order to really be able to see if they really do love you? God seems to be that way and we must take after Him. So today, listen to the Spirit as He asks you that question. Then listen for His instructions to carry out. Love not only in word but in deed. And I pray that you will love Him more than all these. Bliss be with you 💞
