Split Personality

12 February 2015

If someone were to ask you what you know about the Apostle Peter, what comes to your mind?

He walked on water!

He confessed that Jesus was the Christ.

He saw Jesus transfigured.

He raised a young girl from the dead!

All of these are true. Peter did all of these great things and many more, but he also did the following:

Peter spoke and acted too quickly at times.

He had to be rebuked by the Apostle Paul for not showing love equally to the Gentiles.

He argued with God when he had the vision about animals before he went to preach to a Gentile.

He was hasty and tried to violently defend Jesus from being taken in the garden of Gethsemane.

He denied Jesus.

Peter truly had a roller coaster ride with his disicpleship. And it is with us many times, but the most important thing to remember is that Peter never stopped being on of God's elect through all his hills and valleys. In fact, we should especially remember that Jesus allowed him to confess his love for the Lord three times as well!

There is always forgiveness from God for His children. Therefore, we should repent, confess our love for Jesus and do as He instructed Peter - feed His sheep!
