Love of Christ recreated just like Peter in his confessed three times of love.
When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, 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.” John 21:15
Acts 25:13-21, Psalm 103 & John 21:15-19
Jesus allows Peter to admit his love for Jesus not once, not twice but three times to set the record straight for denying Jesus three times after His arrest. Many Biblical Scholars agree that here in John and Matthew is when Jesus gave Peter authority over the whole flock in commissioning the Church and it guidelines by Christ’s own words in Matthew 16:18-19, “And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this Rock I will build My Church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it. I will give you the Keys to the Kingdom of Heaven. Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
Here, we find the Church built strong and centered on Christ’s Salvation to further hope in love, instill faith in peace and live the charity of Eternal Life offered by Christ for all who, “at the Name of Jesus every knee should bend, of those in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is LORD, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:10-11 This is not to say even the Church will make mistakes for men not God still make decisions based upon earthly things when God only chooses Heavenly Truth. This Truth hurts sometimes and in the end corrects all faults by the Blood of His Son’s Cross.
We know that men make mistakes and run churches broke centered not on the Gospel of Christ Jesus but the stupid desires of the flesh wreaking havoc with pride displaying not the humility of Christ’s Truth. Yes, we all make mistakes but it how we surge forward in life to recognize the need for involvement spreading the joy of God’s Word established to offer faith and obedience to propel prayer whereby we give thanks to God for everything we think, say and accomplish to overcome desires of self tethered to the love of Christ recreated just like Peter in his confessed three times of love. We might deny Him but He opens His arms and receives you by His Grace of forgiveness. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray if we deny You LORD we repent quickly and hold on to Your Truth. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Greg Bishop has constant prayers. We begin a novena of healing for a friend’s wife named Roxy. LORD from Psalm 136:23 I chant- “The LORD remembered us in our low estate, for His mercy endures forever.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
I am yours in Christ,
†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed†
Simon Peter confessed his love three times to concede– John 21:15-19
Jesus reappeared to the Disciples to eat
A breakfast of fish feeding the meek
Forgiveness would instill Peter to seek
Asking do you love Me will be the order to speak
The son of John Peter would no longer deny
As Jesus asked, “Do you love Me?” in a cry
You know all things Peter said to Eternally vie
As again Jesus asked a second time to spy
The real love Peter had for the Savior inside
No longer running but building to abide
“Simon, son of John, do you love Me? to confide
Peter answered yes LORD You know that I love Your stride
Jesus wasn’t finished in His Will for Peter’s streak
A third time He would ask if His love will always reach
For Jesus as he climbs to build the Churches peak
When Jesus replied the third time tend and feed His sheep
Growing old younger times will be the memories you see
Dressing yourself was easy as one two and three
Soon they will dress you and lead you to be
The kind of death to glorify by succumbing to always follow Me
Simon Peter confessed his love three times to concede
