Do You Love Me?Series: Things That Make You Go Hmmm...
John 21: 20-23 ESV
Jesus and the Beloved Apostle
20 Peter turned and saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following them, the one who also had leaned back against him during the supper and had said, “Lord, who is it that is going to betray you?” 21 When Peter saw him, he said to Jesus, “Lord, what about this man?” 22 Jesus said to him, “If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you? You follow me!” 23 So the saying spread abroad among the brothers[a] that this disciple was not to die; yet Jesus did not say to him that he was not to die, but, “If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you?”
Ever really messed up with someone? Made a mistake, disappointed them? Maybe it was so bad you weren't sure they could ever forgive you. It's easy to do because we're human, but the consequences of hurting someone are often felt on either end--both parties walk away wrestling with what to do or say next. In John 21, Jesus asks Peter a probing question after Peter's denial of Jesus the night before Jesus died: "Do you love me?"
Join us as we look at this story--and this question--and discuss forgiveness, reconciliation, and Jesus' intent for His question.
