Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 347

  1. “Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these? (John 21:15).

Peter had said it–even if everyone else fails you–as though his commitment to Jesus was second to none. Now, without a previous conversation to soften the crevasse Peter had carved in his own heart with his denial, the fisherman faces the guilt of his own words. But Jesus isn’t demeaning. He doesn’t throw Peter’s words back at him in sarcasm. Instead, one can almost feel the mentor asking His pupil, what did you learn from this path? All Peter can muster is all we can muster in our weakness as well. “Lord, you know that I love you.” And the wounds begin their healing.
