Jesus is our sufficient joy. After His resurrection, Jesus appeared to the disciples on the shore of Tiberias. The disciples had gone back to their former way of life, prior to being called to discipleship. Fishing was their livelihood, but Jesus had other plans for them. He was going to be their livelihood. Bringing Peter to a place of repentance, Jesus asked him three times, “Do you love me?” And after Peter’s three affirmative responses, the Lord charged, “Follow me.” His message to Peter was clear: set all of your affections on Christ, let Him be your subsistence, and follow Him until He brings you home. May this wallpaper remind you of the same.
When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Feed my lambs.” He said to him a second time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Tend my sheep.” He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, “Do you love me?” and he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep. Truly, truly, I say to you, when you were young, you used to dress yourself and walk wherever you wanted, but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will dress you and carry you where you do not want to go.” (This he said to show by what kind of death he was to glorify God.) And after saying this he said to him, “Follow me.”John 21:15-19
