“Simon, son of John, do you love me?” John 21:16
Three times the same question is asked of Peter. ‘Do you love me?’ Put yourself in his shoes. If you were asked over and over again by Jesus if you loved him, how would you respond. It reminds me of that scene in Good Will Hunting where the psychologist played by Robin Williams keeps telling Will over and over again ‘it’s not your fault.’ By repeating the statement he gets through to his client. Is Jesus doing the same thing for Peter? Trying to get through to his heart. Trying to get to an answer that isn’t just off the cuff, but is deeply considered. If Jesus asked you, and you fully understood the ramifications, would you declare your love for him? What do you think it looks like to love Jesus?
