He will deliver his soul from going into the pit, and his life shall see the light. Job 33:28
On the night of Jesus’ arrest, Peter denied Jesus — three times! But after His resurrection, in spite of Peter’s lack of loyalty, Jesus prepared a table of restoration on the shores of the Sea of Galilee and extended to Peter an invitation of mercy: “Come and dine.”
Can you imagine what was going through Peter’s mind? Guilt and gladness, fear and fascination, wonder and worship — a kaleidoscope of emotions! He could not believe he was being invited to the table of the One he had deserted just days before. Not only invited but restored!
The depth of Jesus’ covenant love is not exhausted when we sin. There is forgiveness and restoration.
Read this account of restoration in John 21:4-19. Rejoice over God’s plan of restoration for your life.
