Do You Love Me?

1a retelling of John 21: 15-17

When they had finished eating, Jesus asked Peter, “Simon, would you die for me as I died for you?”

Lord, I would give you anything you ask for.”

Jesus said, “Share my Way.”

A little later, Jesus asked, “Simon, would you stand in harm’s way for me?”

“Lord, you know that I totally support everything you stand for.”

Jesus said, “Take care of our friends.”

Later still, Jesus asked, “Simon, will you be my friend always?”

Peter was upset because Jesus kept challenging him. So, he said, “Lord, considering all we’ve been through together, surely you know we are best friends.”

Jesus said, “Pray together to stay together”
