True Love

A loving heart is the truest wisdom.  -Charles Dickens

Jesus asked Peter, “Peter, do you love me?” And not just once but three times, (one for every time that Peter had denied him).  Each time Peter replied, “Yes, I love you.”  Jesus subsequently urged Peter to feed his sheep.  In other words, if you truly love Jesus then you are accepting Jesus’ call to action.  As Jesus-lovers we are commissioned to love the lost, encourage the brokenhearted and give to the poor.  Seek opportunities to love people and watch as God fills your life with people that also love you.   

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God (1 John 4:7, ESV).
