Speaker: Tim Bollinger
Peter’s decisiveness puts us in awe of how bold and sure he was of his faith and trust in Christ. Yet Peter was the same one who denied even knowing Jesus three times when Jesus was being persecuted. Just as Peter denied Jesus three times, Jesus offers Peter forgiveness and love three times as he calls out Peter’s faith, and then calls him to carry out the calling before him to feed the lambs and sheep of Christ’s flock. His influence to the church comes from the forgiveness offered by Christ, a restoration only given through the grace of Christ.
