How many times does Jesus need to ask Peter the same question?!?!?! Especially when Peter replies “YES” each time, this kind of questioning can seem like overkill.

But, know that there has been ample grace shown in Peter’s life and there will be ample grace shown to us by Christ in our life!

What are some examples of unconditional, self-giving love that you have seen in your life lately?
