We’re moving this week, and I just can’t settle my mind enough to write. I keep thinking of what to pack next or what needs cleaned at our new place. Plus, last week’s post about Peter is still on my mind. So I’ve gone back in the archives and cleaned up a few other posts about Peter to share with you today. I hope you find something you haven’t read previously or something the Lord wants to use in your life right now. Choose one–or all!–to read.
In Who’s Humble Now?, we take a closer look at when Jesus washed the disciples’ feet, especially Peter’s (John 13). We consider real humility and how we can’t tell Jesus what to do, even if it feels like we’re getting better than we deserve.
Have you read about Peter’s denial of Jesus and thought, “What was he thinking?!?” In Rethinking Peter’s Denial, we dig into those hours and find he may have been thinking exactly what we would think in the same situation!
A simple walk on the beach turns into an understated moment of forgiveness and an intense commissioning for Peter. Revisit Peter’s near-last conversation with Jesus in The Elephant on the Beach.
I feel like I still have so much to learn from Peter and his relationship with Jesus. There are more posts about them, too. You can search the Peter tag on the side bar if you haven’t had enough yet.
What do you think of Peter? Which story is your favorite? Which is your most challenging? What prevalent opinion of Peter do you wish would change? Let me know in the comments. I’d love to hear from you on this!
