Do You Love Me? – John Chpt. 21

Do you remember the song ‘Do You Love Me?’ from 1962? It’s kind of a fun song from a musical standpoint. Lyrically, it’s kind if dumb: “Do you love me now that I can dance?” But think about it. We human beings have this bad habit of trying to impress one another in the hopes that we will be loved. It’s silly when you think about it.

Jesus asked Peter, “Do you love me?” He asked him three times. But Jesus (the Father & Holy Spirit by extension) doesn’t have to earn our love. God didn’t earn our love and never intends to try. Rather, loving him is a Scriptural command found in Matt. 22, Mark 12, and Luke 10. So what was the point of Jesus asking Peter the question in John 21? That’s what we are going to find out today.
