16 Sep John 21:17
17 He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love Me?” Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, “Do you love Me?” And he said to Him, “Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You.” Jesus said to him, “Tend My sheep.”
Peter is my favorite disciple. He is a guy who was a simple fisherman, he confessed Christ was the Messiah, he cut the ear off of a soldier, and then Peter denied Christ. He denied knowing Jesus THREE times the night Jesus was arrested! What did Jesus do to Peter? Jesus asked Peter if he loved Him. Jesus also had a command for Peter to tend His sheep. He just put Peter in charge! Instead of catching fish, Peter was in charge of fishing for men.
