He asks that question three times of Simon Peter.
Do You love me?
Am I willing to give the ultimate sacrifice to God?
Do I love him enough?
Am I Simon Peter? Is Christ asking the same after having so graciously forgiven my betrayal?
In my work, I bring souls into heaven.
Am I saving my very own soul by listening and answering this very question?
This question, whispered to me each and every day anew?
