And he went outside and wept bitterly Luke 22:62
Last day before crucifixion, Jesus made it very clear that he will suffer and will die. He made it clear one of the twelve will betray him and he told Peter will deny him. Jesus knew everything but He took it upon him for our sins. First restoration story was Peter’s – 3 Steps to restoration
Prays: When Satan planned to destroy Peter, Jesus responded by praying for Peter “Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift all of you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail.” Luke 22:31,32. Wow! Jesus prays for us too. We ought to pray to the Lord asking help on how to pray.
Look: When Peter denied 3 times “The Lord turned and looked straight at Peter. Then Peter remembered the word the Lord had spoken to him” Luke 22:61 When we sin, Holy Spirit convicts us, respond like Peter, he went out and wept.
Word: After resurrection Jesus asked Peter the same question 3 times “The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” John 21:17 For the number of times Peter denied, Jesus restored him by making Peter confirm of His love to Jesus thrice. Lord restores us by His Word.
Prayer: Father Lord, restore us to higher ground. Teach us to walk in your ways. Amen.
