A sermon which Peter never forgot


A sermon which Peter never forgot.


See the infinite mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ.

"At that moment the Lord turned and
 looked straight at Peter." Luke 22:61

There was a deep meaning in that look.

It was a sermon which Peter never forgot.

The love of Christ toward His people,
is a deep
well which has no bottom! Let us never measure
it by comparison with any kind of love of man or
woman. It exceeds all other love--as far as the
sun exceeds the  candle light. There is about it
a mine of compassion, and patience, and readiness
to forgive sin--of whose riches we have but a faint
conception.

Let us not be afraid to trust that love--when we
first feel our sins. No man need despair, however
far he may have fallen, if he will only repent and
turn to Christ. If the heart of Jesus was so gracious
when He was a prisoner in the judgment hall--we
surely need not think it is less gracious, when He
sits in glory at the right hand of the Father!

J.C. Ryle
