and tell Peter

October 25, 2010

Lord , I shall never deny you ever,

Quick Peter used words too clever.

All may fail, but I shall ever leave your side..

Said our dear Peter, in Christ’s testing time.

Verily, verily, Jesus confined

Tonight You shall deny me thrice

And the rest of the story I need not describe

Coward was Peter, it is always transcribed.

Denying Jesus was easy, but denying self was worst.

A guilty conscience, an unfruitful faith is sure a curse.

And Peter,  hid himself, I imagine..

Ashamed and guilty just like Adam in Eden

“Do I deserve forgiveness,

Can a coward be His witness??

Can I be forgiven, am I still Master’s  choice ??”

I don’t deserve good”, said Peter’s inner voice..

And soon the angels appeared that bright morning,

unto the disciples who were still mourning

to tell all disciples and Peter especially ♣

About Jesus’s travel to Galilee..

Those lines , carefully and lovingly spun

To tell Peter that he was still part of the holy marathon.

leaving behind the guilt and shame

Peter was still in the game.

Verily , Verily my co-friends with Peter,

Tells Jesus who once told the cheater,

“Have you like Peter denied me, oh child?

I am still ready to give you new life…!!!”

♣ (……..But go, tell his disciples and Peter, …….. ” (Mark 16:-7).

    Then Peter came to Him and said, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven. (Matthew 18:21-22)

    It is like saying to Peter even if he fail Jesus no matter how many times, Jesus will never give Peter up. This means for the rest of us as well.
