Peter (Simon)

Today we will talk about Peter, who was also called Simon. Matthew, Mark, Luke and John describe Peter as a man of action. They also describe him as a man who sometimes talked when he should have listened.
Peter walked on water until he took his eyes off Jesus. Then he started to sink. Another time Peter boasted that he would never leave Jesus. Within hours, Peter said three times that he did not know Jesus.
Many people look at Peter and see his weaknesses. But in our Bible Reading today we see a new Peter. He has been filled with the Holy Spirit. Peter is now a courageous preacher.
Maybe it is hard for you to say and do the right things. Maybe you are afraid to tell other people about Jesus. God can change you — just like He changed Peter. Let God work through you today.
