Lessons from the Life of Peter
Just as the hand of a sculptor works gently and patiently to shape a common stone into a beautiful work of art, so God works in our lives to conform us to the image of His Son. Through the life of Peter we see a stunning example of the transforming power of God.
When you admit who you are and what your sins are, Jesus can change you.
We can fish in the most improbable places, at the most inappropriate times, and even among impossible people.
Often, in the midst of the will of God, at the very moment that we’re in obedience to Christ, the greatest storms of life encompass us.
There is a total unavoidability about Christ: no one can be neutral about Him.
Jesus alone has the words of eternal life. No one else has any answers. Whatever your need may be, the answer is found in Christ.
The cross of Christianity is not an ornament. It’s a reality, and it should be a reminder of what God has done for us.
The needs of people and the glory of Christ are linked together. Our greatest need is to have faith that He can and will supply our needs.
Until we see and admit our sinfulness—until Christ has cleansed us on the inside—we’re dirty no matter how wonderful we look on the outside.
On the night of Jesus’ betrayal, Peter boasted too much, prayed too little, acted too soon, followed too far, and thought too late.
Christ knows who you are; Christ knows who you can be; and Christ has the power to transform you.
It’s a transformed life that touches and helps people in their walk with God.
If the trials and prisons of life take us into the darkest times of our lives, God is with us. He will never abandon us.
Be faithful where God has planted you. Serve Christ every single day. Your faithfulness will meet you again and be multiplied by God.
