Christ Consciousness

What if we channeled Love to others without regard to worthiness?

John 21:17

Jesus said to Peter the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” Peter was distressed that he had said to him a third time, “Do you love me?” and he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep.”

Jesus could have been angry with Peter since he had denied knowing Jesus three times right before the crucifixion.

Instead, Jesus offered forgiveness.

He allowed Peter to redeem himself by asking him three times if he loved him.

We can say that we love someone…but what does that really mean without a demonstration of that love?

Talk can be cheap.

True love calls for action.

Jesus instructed Peter to demonstrate his love for him by tending to the needs of the flock.

That would be everyone regardless of merit.

The only way some people may ever know the love of God…is through you.
