As we contemplate the resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ, and how we can best worship and honor Him this Easter, the question that He asked His disciples after they pulled nets brimming with fish out of the water, is one we might ask ourselves: “Lovest thou me more than these?” (John 21:15).
“These” in the scripture referred to the fish His disciples had caught, but what would “these” be to us in our day? Would He ask us if we love the things of this world more than we love Him? Do we love Him more than Facebook? More than TikTok and Instagram? Is He asking about the many things competing for our time and attention?Are we running fast after things that have no lasting value? Is this a question about our daily priorities and what we really value and how we spend our time and our resources. Is He asking how we treat our family and those closest to us and how we serve and help our fellow man?
