As Peter Saw It - Postscript : Three strikes and ... in !
Peter here again, I
just had to tell you about what happened this morning. You know how some of us,
his followers, were fishermen? Well, we didn't know what to do so I suggested
taking the boat out & going fishing again. The lads came too. All night we
were out there and .. nothing, must have lost our touch. As we were coming back
to the shore there was someone there & he had a fire going. As we got near
he called out "have you caught any fish?", I guess he was hungry! We
said no… then an odd thing happened, he told us to throw the nets over the
other side. Wow, we nearly sink the boat trying to get the nets in again. Then
it dawned on me - it must be HIM, the Master! So I jumped out of the boat and ran,
well, waded really, to him. He said to bring some fish over & we had
breakfast. Then … well, he took me aside and asked me if I loved him. "I
said you know I do!".
This is the embarrassing bit, you know how I told you he'd said I would deny
him? Well, I.. I .. didn't say, I did it three times before that cock did its
bit. So now, the Master asked me if I loved him, not once but three times, like
it was penance. Told me to feed His
sheep. I don't think he meant the woolly sort though. Now I know what
forgiveness feels like, like a new life, a fresh start … and a job to do.
