Commissioned! His was not a pointless death so Ours is not a pointless life Matt 28:18-20
AFTER THE RESURRECTION, What is the MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION? How many times have you sinned? Why did you not do better? Why do your friends not know about your faith? Have you prayed & read the Bible today? Where were you last night? Could you take me? Why did you leave me when I needed you most? OR … John 21:15-17
John 21:15-18 So when they had eaten breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me more than these?” He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.” He said to him, “Feed My lambs.” He said to him again a second time, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me?” He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.” He said to him, “Tend My sheep.” He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you love Me?” Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, “Do you love Me?” And he said to Him, “Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You.” Jesus said to him, “Feed My sheep.
After the resurrection, Peter was restored in love and RE-COMMISSIONED After contemplating the Crucifixion, when we see our sin and shame, Jesus simply asks us, “Do you love me?”
Isaiah 53: 2-6 He has no form or comeliness; And when we see Him, There is no beauty that we should desire Him. He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. Surely He has borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
And that’s why I love Him! We love him because he first loved us… I John 4:19 …who loved us and gave himself for us. Eph 5:2b
And here’s how I love Him! …walk in love as Christ also has... Eph 5:2a I Love Him – Keep my commandments – Feed my sheep – GO and make disciples – lovers of Jesus
