ANGLICAN BOARD OF MISSION (ABM) PEW REFLECTIONS: Sunday 1 May 2022
John tells us today about the third of the appearances of Jesus after the Resurrection and how, like at the beginning of his ministry when he called the disciples (see Mark 1 and Luke 5) that the fishermen’s nets were groaning with a good haul. Then, at the end of the story after the fish had been grilled, we see Jesus grilling Peter. He asks Peter three times whether he loves him. Getting more and more hurt Peter answers yes each time. Each time Jesus then responds with a command: look after the flock.
If I were to examine myself, would I find areas of my life where I have claimed to love Jesus but acted as if it were otherwise? Have I failed to provide love and care for those who are around me?
- Jesus Christ, Risen Lord, help me to love you in my heart, and to demonstrate it by my care for others.
