On May, 6th, we continue our teaching on 'the Commands of Christ.' Jesus shares, "If you love you me, you will keep my commands (John 14:15)." These are powerful words we need to study, reflect and meditate on. But most importantly, we are called to put these words into practice.
This coming Sunday we will focus on the exchange Jesus had with Simon Peter when he asked him this question: "Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?"
What can we learn from this dialogue between Jesus and Peter? What wisdom does Jesus share? What lessons about restoration, grace and healing can we learn? What might the Holy Spirit have in store for you as we study and mediate on the words of John 21 this week?
Please spend some extra time reading John 21.
