In the Gospel of John, the word “love” is mentioned 31 times from John 14 to 17. It seems Jesus wanted to be sure his people really understood… the reason why he came to earth… and what he wanted his disciples to do after he left.
I recently read a book, “Epic Fail” written by Rev. Jesse Lee and one of his words (below) made me stop and ponder on what I’m doing in Cambodia.
When you get to Heaven and see Jesus face to face, he will not ask you about what kind of ministry you have done on earth and how big it was, but instead he will ask “Do you love me?… Did you take good care of my sheep?” (Rev. Jesse Lee, the book “Epic Fail”)
