That’s a good question: “Do I really love God? From my heart? And how do I prove I love Him?”
I was thinking about when Jesus reinstated Peter after Peter denied Him. He did so within the framework of love. He did not list all Peter’s mistakes or good deeds. He didn’t talk about second chances. He didn’t even ask if Peter believed in Him. Instead, He asked Peter, “Do you love Me?”
Jesus was asking not about programs, accomplishments, duty, prestige, leadership, zeal, beliefs, or even sincerity. He was asking about love. I think He is asking the same question of you and me every day.
