GET UP PETER! This is what Jesus told Peter to do before he even denied Him 3 times. Jesus spoke to Peter that He was praying for him and that when he got up to encourage the others.
CAN YOU IMAGINE WHAT THE BIBLE WOULD HAVE WRITTEN IF PETER NEVER FORGAVE HIMSELF?
Who would have preached the first sermon at the launching of the church?
Peter’s denial was one travesty, BUT, if he had not forgiven himself and gotten up then his purpose, call, legacy would have ended!
THERE IS NO CONDEMNATION TO THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST JESUS – Rom. 8:1.
Peter felt the conviction of his denial when the cock crowed, and when Jesus looked at him – Luke 22:60-62.
Peter wept bitterly – BUT……. HE GOT UP! JESUS FORGAVE HIM, PETER RECEIVED IT, THE VISION CONTINUED!
Paul says it this way…
Philippians 3:13-14, Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, 14I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
THIS ONE THING THAT I DO….. FORGETTING THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE BEHIND – PRESS FORWARD!
You cannot change your past, but you can have a different future. Stop looking backwards and focus forward to the plan that Jesus has for your life!
FORGIVE YOURSELF AND GRAB THE BEST THAT JESUS HAS FOR YOUR TODAY AND TOMORROW.
