Jesus asks Peter three times: “Do you love me?” When Peter answers in the affirmative, Jesus replies: “feed my sheep.”
Jesus is asking Peter – and us, by extension – to care for his “flock”…his followers. If we love Jesus, we are to care for his people.
Sometimes we may feel like we are not cut out for the task. We are flawed. We are going to mess this up. But Jesus implores us, anyway: “feed my sheep.” Based on John 18:15-18, 25-27 and John 21:15-19.
