Falling in love! It’s a wonderful feeling when we fall in love. Everyone goes through this phase of life. It produces unspeakable emotions and feelings.
There is a strong attraction pulling two love birds together. These feelings continue upto certain age. This kind of attraction is considered as an immature kind of love.
This kind of love is a fantasy. It takes people on a cloud nine kind of journey. It is not compatible to match the challenges of life.
A true love will stand in the times of testings and trials. I myself developed attractions towards opposite sex. It was one-sided often. Today I feel that it was a foolishness on my part. Today I am in love with my spouse.
Our love has been through rough period but it withstood the test and trials. It has matured to higher level. Although it is still in imperfect state but it is moving forward in the right direction.
Lord Jesus Christ posed a peculiar question to his disciple.
John 21:17 NASBS
He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, 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, “Tend My sheep.
Jesus Christ asked his disciple, Simon, “do you love me?” This is is the third time he asked same thing. What would you do if someone is asking repeatedly same thing? If I was in Simon’s place I would have felt bad.
Exactly, Simon was grieved because of repeated questions. He ultimately responded saying, “Lord, You know all things.” Yes Jesus Christ knew Simon more than Simon knew about himself.
Just before the crucifixion Jesus had predicted denial of Simon. Three times Simon denied that he knew Jesus. Simon cried bitterly afterwards.
Today what is our answer to the Lord, if he is asking same question to you and me. The Lord Jesus already knows Who loves him.
