What would your answer be?

If the Lord asked you; do you love me?

Just as; Jesus asked Peter:

John 21:15: So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.

Lamb –

1.  A young sheep.

2.  Flesh of this animal, used as food.

3. A gentle, innocent, or helpless person.

A Lamb is not grown; it must be treated; as an innocent, helpless being.

Scholastic Dictionary

 

One of the problems; that many Christians; may have to day; is that we may treat baby Christians, the same as we do Christians that have been saved for a long time; that may have tough; rough skin. I have never been able to understand anyone; that has spent time; in the presence of a loving God and can come away bitter, harsh and cynical.

John 21:16: He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

John 21:17: He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

Jesus; ask Peter 3 times; did He love Him.

I wonder; does this have anything to do with the unconditional love; that Jesus exemplifies to us.

Meaning; that we should show the same love to one another?

How would you/I answer this question?

We cannot give something away that we do not possess.

No matter what it is?

Love

Forgiveness

Affection

Courtesy

Care

Concern

Compassion

Money

Whatever; it may be; if you do not have it; you cannot give it.

Genesis 32:28: And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.

Genesis 32:32: Therefore the children of Israel eat not of the sinew which shrank, which is upon the hollow of the thigh, unto this day: because he touched the hollow of Jacob’s thigh in the sinew that shrank.

Interesting, Jacobs name was changed to Israel! Thus we have the “Children of Israel” then we are referred to as sheep.

John 21:15: So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.
John 21:16: He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
John 21:17: He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

Matthew 9:36: But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.

John 10:11: I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
John 10:14: I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.

I need the good Shepherd!

I want to let encourage you; God loves you regardless of what you are going through! Cry out to the Lord where you are! He is waiting for you. God has a specific plan for you!

It begins with accepting Christ as Your Personal Savior. Denouncing satan and his works!

Note: Please go to your Pastor and inform them that you have accepted Christ. Please do as he instructs you to do! I am just someone that wants to point you to Christ, this website does not take the place of your personal relationship with Christ or your attending church service on a regular basis.

Romans 10:8: But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
Romans 10:9: That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
Romans 10:10: For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Romans 10:11: For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

Dear Lord,
I admit that I am a sinner. I have done many things that don’t please you. I have lived my life for myself. I am sorry and I repent. I ask you to forgive me. I believe that you died on the cross for me, to save me. You did what I could not do for myself. I come to you now and ask you to take control of my life, I give it to you. Help me to live every day in a way that pleases you. I love you, Lord, and I thank you that I will spend all eternity with you.
