Peter: Friends Again

Thursday 26 July 2018, 12:01am

Peter was very sad because he had said Jesus was not his friend.  Something even more terrible had happened.  Jesus had been killed.  As he was dead, Peter could not tell him how sorry he was and that he still wanted to be friends.

Then God did something wonderful!  Jesus was alive again!

Peter and Jesus’ other friends went fishing.  Jesus met them on the seashore and they all had breakfast together.  They were all so happy that Jesus was alive.

Could Peter and Jesus be friends again?

Jesus asked Peter, “Do you love me?”

“Yes!” said Peter.

Jesus asked again, “Do you love me?”

“Yes!” said Peter.

Three times Jesus asked, “Do you love me?”

And three times Peter said, “Yes!”

Jesus smiled, “I still need you to help me do God’s work.”

Now Peter knew that Jesus loved him and still wanted him as a very special friend.
