Most of us remember the gospel about Jesus asking Peter three times, do you love me? But we might be unsure about why that is significant.
There are times in life that we are no longer in charge and we are led where we do not want to go. We may begin to doubt God’s love. Life is not perfect … we are not perfect. What is perfect is that Jesus is alive and that the light of the Holy Spirit has unlocked for us the gates to eternity!
Talk about some times that you and your family have been challenged by life’s circumstances. Did you begin to have doubts about God’s love? How did you support each other and stay together?
Let us pray that our devotion to Jesus deepens and that our faith be straightened so that when He asks us, do you love me, our response will always be, yes, Lord, you know I do. God bless your family and all families around the world!
