I Am Peter, The Truth is, We are all Peter!
Once. Twice. Three times.
Peter the Apostle denied Christ THREE times, even after being forewarned that one among the Apostles would do so. Peter was a man who loved our Lord so much. He gave up his life to follow Christ. Yet, he was so human and fell just like we do... continually.
Jesus changed Peter's heart and life and made him the first Pope, the first grand caretaker of the Church.
span style="line-height: 1.22;">NASHVILLE, TN - You can't deny the message Jesus sends to us by choosing Peter. No matter how many times we fall (and fall, we will), our lives still carry so much value and purpose. No matter what we've done, there is still so much room for Jesus to fill us with His grace and enter our hearts. Because Christ died for us, we are redeemed and forgiven time and time again, whether we feel deserving or not.
I imagine Peter felt unworthy to be forgiven after he repeatedly denied the man who was sent to save him. Still Jesus teaches us what it really means to love and forgive. He changed Peter's heart and life and made him the first Pope, the first grand caretaker of the Church.
See our exquisite rosaries
I often think to myself, I am Peter. Don't you ever have those moments in life where you know you've just failed? You know what you've said or done was not pleasing to God, but you couldn't take back what was already said or done? So you tell yourself it won't happen again, but then before you know it you're right back in your old ways? Peter. That was Peter. Once. Twice. Three times.
The truth is, we are all Peter. We've all fallen and will fall again; however, you need to know that your life has a beautiful future in store. You have a saving, redeeming God who loves you and with Him all things are possible. So when you feel like the betraying Peter, just remember the Peter God turned him into. The Peter he was meant to become.
Allow God to turn you into who you were meant to become.
