Repentance of Peter

Repentance is something that every human being must do. Peter, one of Jesus’ disciples, who was always by his side, never thought that he would deny Jesus. But this fell like a surprise:

31 Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift all of you as wheat.

32 But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.

Luke 22:31-32

In verse 32 Jesus advises Simon that once he is well, he will confirm his brothers and help him move forward.

Peter, remembering what Jesus had told him, after denying Him, humbled himself and asked the Lord for forgiveness for what had happened, and this man understood that there was no one perfect, but that there was only one and that was Jesus.

Each day that we live brings with it its own eagerness and problems at the same time, that is why our faith must always be subject to our Lord Jesus who is the author and the consummate of the faith.

We are not perfect beings and many people do not understand that, that perfect there is only one and is the son of God. and He is the one who can help us increase our faith so that when moments of persecution come we will be strong in faith.

They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built.

Luke 6:48

Even though Peter was a man who denied Jesus, he was also a man who humbled himself and asked for forgiveness, did what Jesus had told him before denying it.

It is very important that we take these words into account, and that we can ask the Lord to help us so that our faith is well grounded in the strong rock: Jesus, the only one who can do everything and who helps us all the time to move forward, knocking down every adversary and every argument that is against the children of God in the name of Jesus.

    Peter’s Repentance
    The importance of repentance is very relevant so that people may have fellowship with God. It is Jesus who taught us to repent from our sins.
    We can’t ask Jesus’s pardon and be forgiven if we do not truly repent of our sins.
    We can’t seek forgiveness of sin and continue with the transgression. Our soul will not attain peace until we recognize the sin and have a deep purpose, even with tears, do of not repeating the evil done. However, Jesus teaches us to forgive our brother on all occasions, whenever he comes to us asking for forgiveness.

    In Peter, feelings of remorse arose after denying his Master three times.
    Jesus advises him about it and asked for him, that his faith would not fail.
    “Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift all of you as wheat.
    But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.”
    Luke 22:31-32

    Our Lord loves us and he is always ready to pardon us, but we must not abuse his love
