What does this passage teach you about Jesus’ character based on His response to Peter’s actions?
What sin are you scared to bring to the feet of Jesus?
When Peter said he loved Jesus, why did Jesus say “Feed my sheep”? What could this look like in your life?
When someone or something challenges your values, what helps you stay true to your convictions?
Gracious Lord, forgive me for declaring my love for You one moment and then denying You the next. You have always been faithful, and have loved me, even when I deny You–either by my words or my actions. Your forgiveness heals and grants me a hope, a new calling, and a future. I desire to know You more deeply and to make You known. Renew in me each day a desire to seek You first. Make it my joy to declare Your glorious character to my own soul and to every beloved soul that You place in my path.
I give You thanks, for through Your merciful sacrifice on the cross, You have forgiven my offenses and restored sweet fellowship with me. Now I live to proclaim Your love and share Your life, so that the world may know You and that I may abide more fully in Your presence. Amen.
