A question at a recent staff meeting prompted “What person would you like to spend a day with”. At first my obvious answer was Jesus. But laying that aside, I settled on Peter. Here is a man who started rough, messed up along the way and finished strong. Here is a man, who at times was uncensored in allowing his thought to come out his mouth. The man who could be at the pinicle one moment, then at the bottom on the next. And when the ressurection occurred, he was the one the angel had a specific word for.
What made him tick? When he “went a fishing” after the death of Jesus, why did he go back? Was it what I feel inside to be true , that he wanted to go back where God showed up big in his life? What was he thinking when he heard the word from that angel? What were his last words? His parting thoughts?
