📍 Jesus asked His disciples “who do YOU say that I am?” and He asked Peter “Do you love me?” 💖 He asks each of us the same ~ How we respond in the deepest parts of our souls dictates how we will live, treat others, spend our time and our walk with Him 📍
He warns in the letters to the Churches in the Book of Revelation to not take their eyes of their First Love, commit to the first works, to not hold onto this life or anything in it, even if that means imprisonment or death, we are not to fear these things for His sake. To be watching for Him. His gold tried in the fire, eye slave to see and keeping the raiment white.
