I hope you have enjoyed our look this week at the life of Peter the Disciple. As I have prepared this message and put the message into devotions I have been inspired by Peter’s life and the grace shown to him by our Lord – that same grace is ours today. Grace means the undeserved favor of God. Grace communicates that no matter how good or bad you have been, you’ll never be good enough. Jesus lived and died in your place and your salvation is not about your own acts of goodness, but about God’s mercy and forgiveness.
Like Peter we need to repent of our sins and throw ourselves on the grace and mercy of God. Whatever stage we are in our lives and what ever we are going through we need to FOLLOW HIM.
Brother Lawrence said this:
I consider myself as the most wretched of men, full of sores and corruption, and who has committed all sorts of crimes against the King; touched with a sensible regret I confess to Him all my wickedness, I ask His forgiveness, I abandon myself in His hands, that He may do what He pleases with me. This King, full of mercy and goodness, very far from chastising me, embraces me with love, makes me eat at His table, serves me with His own hands, gives me the keys of His treasures; He converses and delights Himself with me incessantly, in a thousand and a thousand ways, and treats me in all respects as His favourite. It is thus I consider myself from time to time in His holy presence.
Let’s live our lives in his presence feeding his sheep
Have a great day and we look forward to seeing you in church tomorrow at 10.30am at Becket Keys School – we have a guest speaker who is Pastor Danial Ho from Malaysia and we have asked him to bring a word in season for us as a church.
Pastor Peter Jordan
