John 21 : 15-19

   15  After breakfast Jesus asked Simon Peter, "Simon son of John, do you love me more than these? [15] "
  "Yes, Lord," Peter replied, "you know I love you."
  "Then feed my lambs," Jesus told him.
   16  Jesus repeated the question: "Simon son of John, do you love me?"
  "Yes, Lord," Peter said, "you know I love you."
  "Then take care of my sheep," Jesus said.
   17  A third time he asked him, "Simon son of John, do you love me?" Peter was hurt that Jesus asked the question a third time. He said, "Lord, you know everything. You know that I love you." Jesus said, "Then feed my sheep."    18  "I tell you the truth, when you were young, you were able to do as you liked; you dressed yourself and went wherever you wanted to go. But when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and others [18]  will dress you and take you where you don't want to go."  19  Jesus said this to let him know by what kind of death he would glorify God. Then Jesus told him, "Follow me."
