The Post Resurrection Board Meeting, At The Lake
Did you know that Y'shua, Jesus made Peter recant his denials three times, after his resurrection? Everyone knows that Peter denied the Messiah, three times, during his trials. However, at a post resurrection meeting at a lake, Y'shua, Jesus asked Peter three times, if he loved him. John 21:15-17. The interesting thing about this conversation can be found in the Greek. In reality, Y'shua, Jesus asked Peter if he loved and is committed to him, the first two times, and Peter responded, "Lord, you know, I like you." During the third time, Y'shua, Jesus asked Peter if he liked him. Peter responded with the same response. Immediately after the third time, Peter realized what had just happened and he wept. It is obvious that God expects confession but this also shows that, even though God expects our relationship to end in total commitment, he is willing to except simple acknowledgment, at the beginning. This begs a question that we need to ask ourselves daily. Are we walking the walk or just talking the talk?
