Grace Defined

During church this morning, my pastor gave such a great sermon on grace, and on starting at the beginning again. Peter was given a chance to start all over again. I sat there in church, and though I should have been watching the interpreter to catch everything, I had to write this down. I pray it inspires you as it did me. I am thankful for the Grace and the chance to start at the beginning again when we’ve goofed up in life.

 

Eyes curiously stare,

“You were with him.”

Peter sits frightened,

“I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

 

Do you love me?

Yes, I do.

Feed my lambs.

Jesus beckons.

 

Another binds him to the condemned one,

“Aren’t you one of his followers?”

Peter shies away,

“I don’t know the man!”

 

Do you love me?

Yes!

Care for my sheep.

Jesus pursues.

 

Fingers points,

“You followed him, surely!”

Peter curses,

“No, I did not!”

 

Do you LOVE me?

Yes! I do!

Feed my sheep.

Jesus persists.

 

The rooster had crowed,

Shame and guilt stained his heart,

But thrice the Savior redeemed,

Giving way to grace indeed.
