[Today in Christian Radio] June Hunt said, “Three denials, three questions, three opportunities to restore [Peter] to ministry….For every denial, [Jesus] gave [Peter] the opportunity to be restored to ministry.” As Christians, we have the tendency to focus on rejection, failure, and shame—especially when it happens repeatedly. The relationship between Jesus and Peter proves Jesus forgives repeated failures and offers many chances. Lord, help us to receive forgiveness for past mistakes, accept restoration of our relationship to You, and hope for future success. Amen.
