As I began to see the breaking waves around me, I began to doubt. Like Peter, I began to doubt. Why Peter? First the denial which came later. Then the rebuke which came before. And now the question which came last, "Do you Peter love me more than these? What do we do when we get the Peter in us? Are we there when we deny the Lord? Are we there when the waves come crashing? Are we there when we are rebuked by the Lord? Then the question, "Do you love me more than these? Have we examined our faith? Have we tested the Lord for something only he can do? One of my favorite prayers is for God to put love in my heart. I'm very poor in that. I really want to have cheer in doing something for those that give me heart-ache. My A-B exercise is to ask myself," Do I only love those that love me? Even the publicans do the same. I really want to build on the most important virtues. Virtues like love, faith and justice. These virtues tell-a-tale of a real christian life. Sometimes I get lost in the diligence and work, but do I love the Lord like used to. Those at Ephesus had this warning. My central meditation, like I've said, is to know wether I have love in my heart? Am I a good tree with apple and pears? I make mistakes, many. I come to the Lord in prayer and ask for forgivenes. I like to confess that I've come short of his glory. I love the fact the God is a good God. So Peter, do you love me more than these? I tell the Lord that I'm helpless in that respect. I can only do what he affords me through his grace. May you be blessed. Amen.
