This is the question asked of Peter by our Lord Jesus Christ some time after his denial. We should ask this question of ourselves today. How is our love for Christ today? We are commanded to love God. “And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might” (Deut. 6:5). Jesus said, “If ye love me, keep my commandments” (John 14:15). This month we are promoting love to each other. Do you love him? How many of our problems would be solved if we followed God’s directions.
Maybe the real problem is that we don’t love the Lord as we should. In John 21 Jesus asked if Peter loved him “More than these.” Do we think we love the Lord more than any one else? Shouldn’t we stop exercising our pride and examine our love compared to the command the Lord gave us in the first place. What if we set aside our own selfishness and self centeredness and obeyed the Lord? How would our problems in our homes be solved? How would the problems at the work place disappear? Would our financial difficulties vanish following God’s word?
