Love: A Call to Action
Gena Matthews

"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 21:15 KJV)

Sponsor AdAfter Jesus continue to question Peter two more times, Peter was grieved and hurt that Jesus had to ask him if he loved Him.  Peter was probably still dealing with condemnation and guilt after having denied Jesus.  Have you ever dealt with condemnation or guilt after having failed in your own love walk?  A wonderful thing about Jesus is that He does not take back His gift of love.

Romans 11:29(AMP) states, "For God's gifts and His call are irrevocable [He never withdraws them once they are given, and He does not change His mind about those to whom He gives His grace or to whom He sends His call.]”

Love is an action word. Peter used his gift of love by doing what Jesus called him to do.  Just as Jesus commissioned Peter back into his purpose, Jesus is calling each of us to use our gift of love to fulfill the purpose we have for our lives.

About: I am a christian woman who loves the Lord with all her heart and soul, and strives to love my neighbor as myself. I thank Him for His death, burial and resurrection, for the work of the cross and His precious blood that he shed for me and you on Calvary, that washed all of our sins away forever. The word of God says "Let the redemed of the Lord say so" I am one of the redemed and I'm not afraid nor am I ashamed to say so!. I give God all the glory and all the praise for all that He has, is, and will become in my life, It's because of Jesus that I am saved TODAY, AND I PRAISE HIM!
