Have you ever denied the Lord?
Denied Him with your silence?
Denied Him with your behavior?
If you have denied Jesus , and surely all of us have in some way, then you know something of Peter’s shame and humiliation at his denial. We may be guilty too, and may have felt like Peter, but we can also experience the same forgiveness and restoration that Peter received.
The forgiven Peter spent the rest of his life telling the world about Jesus and His salvation. In his book in the New Testament Peter points out that Jesus is “precious”, and states that to us who believe we will find Him “precious” also.
“Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected by men, but chosen
by God and “precious”; Therefore, to you who believe, He is “precious”.- I Peter 2:4,7
