Today we encounter Jesus asking Peter a threefold question which is really one question. In fact, the question Jesus poses to Peter is the only question that should concern us in life. The answer to this question will help us move forward.
Think about all the questions we ask God on a regular basis. Think about the thousand questions that go unasked but fill our hearts and minds. Yet, all those question pale in comparison to the one question of Jesus. The question of Jesus is the answer to all of our questions.
Think about that for a moment: the question Jesus poses to Peter is the answer to all the question we may pose to Him.
Here it is: "Simon, Son of John, do you love me more than these?"
Do yo love me more than these?
This is the question that answers all the questions of our life.
No matter the circumstances we may go through or have gone through the question of Jesus should alway be both in the back ground of our lives and front and center as well.
For if we can truly answer this question, then we will discover that all of our questions will find their proper place in life.
Do you love me more than these?
Only the affirmative will bring us the peace and strength as the journey unfolds.
