“I love you, LORD.”
Psalm 18:1 (NLT)
“A third time he asked him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter was hurt that Jesus asked the question a third time. He said, ‘Lord, you know everything. You know that I love you.’”
Has your faith in God developed to the point where it has gone past a religion to a relationship? Has your belief gone past your head and entered your heart? Has your worship matured beyond the praise songs you sing to where you have told God what David did? The Lord rescued David from Saul and his enemies so David sat down and sang a song to the Lord. The first words out of his mouth were, “I love you Lord.” Have you ever told God that? “I love you Lord.” It isn’t Christianity until you can tell Him that. Ask Peter. Peter spent three years with Jesus. He knew Him. He served Him. He pledged his allegiance to Him. But he also denied Him. When Jesus rose again from the dead He only had one question for Peter. Three times He asked, “Do you love me?” When Peter answered Jesus for the third time there was something earnest in his voice. He was moved and said, “Lord, you know everything. You know that I love you.” Both David and Peter used the word “Lord” when addressing God and then they both used the word love. Why? Because, He can’t be your Lord without your love. Today, hear Him ask, “Do you love me?” What is your answer?
Father, I come to You right now and tell You from the bottom of my heart, I love You. I commit my life to You. I truly do love You Lord.
