Do You Love Me?

In today's Gospel reading (John 21:15-25), which continues from yesterday's narrative, we find a profound insight into our journey with Christ. It unfolds in the heartfelt dialogue between Jesus and Peter, where Jesus repeatedly asks, "Simon, son of Jonas, do you love me?" This question transcends the boundaries of time and space, extending to each of us with the same inquiry: "Do you love me?"

In the relentless pace and distractions of life, it's all too easy to overlook the essence of our faith. It's not just about attending church, following commandments, or performing religious duties. At its core, our faith is about love—a personal, heartfelt relationship with Jesus Christ.

Think about the relationships in your life. What keeps them vibrant and strong? Isn't it the expressions of love, the moments of heartfelt communication? Just as we tell our loved ones that we love them, we should express our love to Jesus. It's not because He needs to hear it, but because we need to say it. It's in saying "I love you, Lord" that we open our hearts more fully to His presence, His guidance, and His infinite love.

So, let's make it a habit to tell Jesus, "I love you, Lord," every day. Let it be the first thing we say in the morning and the last thing we say at night. Let it be our declaration in times of joy and our proclamation in moments of challenge.

When we say "I love you, Lord," we're not just uttering words; we're aligning our hearts with His. We're stepping into a flow of divine love that transforms us, heals us, and empowers us. We're saying yes to a relationship that is the very source of life, hope, and joy.
