John Lynn first did this teaching in 1990, and it was the most popular cassette tape in the bookstore for a long time. He is now reprising it as the June WWF and also making it part of the upcoming video, Jesus Christ: The Diameter of the Ages. Focusing on Peter’s relationship with Jesus, this teaching is both hilarious and heartwarming.
Experiencing the LORDship of Jesus Christ is the key to manifesting his goodness in the world today (1 Pet. 3:15). How each of us relates to him is the bottom line of our Christian walk. The problem is our persistent humanity.
God has provided us with a real life example of someone with whom we can easily identify. Peter personified Proverbs 24:16 (“A righteous man falls seven times, but rises again…”)! Peter provides us with true inspiration as to where we can go if we follow the Lord’s leading. Religion too often says we must be perfect, but Jesus looks on our heart, and works with us, just like he did with Peter, who ended up getting two books in the Bible!
How far do you want to go with the Lord Jesus? He will never lead you where his grace cannot keep you. Let us follow the example of Peter and let the Lord guide us, correct us, pick us up, and help us stand for him for a lifetime.
