A lesson in love

Peter denied that he knew Jesus, which Jesus foretold.

Later, Jesus predicts that Peter will follow Jesus in places that he won’t want to go to, but that he will go to. Peter will go this time. This time he will not deny Jesus, but will follow him in places that were uncomfortable and uncertain.

Peter went because of love for Jesus.

At times, love means going where one doesn’t want to go for a mission greater than ones self.

If Peter loved Jesus, he would spread his master’s message–Jesus said he offered eternal life and other people should know it–even if going to spread the message was out of Peter’s comfort zone.

The lesson in love is that love for Jesus can take one out of the comfort zone, through thick and thin.

I am a published, experienced writer. Many of the publications I have written for have shut up shop. My first job was a one page film review column every quarter. I did that for four years and then the magazine closed down. For ten years after, I wrote instinctive film reviews on a regular basis for a website, then I left. During that time I contributed faith-based and topical news and features to several publications especially Challenge Weekly (which closed down) and after Challenge still contributed on occasion to other publications. In 2014-16, I regularly contributed to faces.org.nz (which is now suspended) and for about eighteen months was an entertainment columnist for Beliefnet.com. Some of my work is linked to below as well as links to my latest blogs.
