The Corrections of Peter

Preachers Corner https://www.preacherscorner.org.uk

There are times when we fail Lord without intending too. In this Address, you will hear of the times when the Lord corrected Peter so he would be more serviceable to Him.  I trust as you listen you may learn from Peter’s experiences.

Bible Scriptures: Darby Translation

Matthew 16:21-2421 From that time Jesus began to shew to his disciples that he must go away to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and the third day be raised.22 And Peter taking him to [him] began to rebuke him, saying, [God] be favourable to thee, Lord; this shall in no wise be unto thee.23 But turning round, he said to Peter, Get away behind me, Satan; thou art an offence to me, for thy mind is not on the things that are of God, but on the things that are of men.24 Then Jesus said to his disciples, If any one desires to come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.”

Matthew 17:1-517 And after six days Jesus takes with [him] Peter, and James, and John his brother, and brings them up into a high mountain apart.And he was transfigured before them. And his face shone as the sun, and his garments became white as the light;and lo, Moses and Elias appeared to them talking with him.And Peter answering said to Jesus, Lord, it is good we should be here. If thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles: for thee one, and for Moses one, and one for Elias.While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them, and lo, a voice out of the cloud, saying, *This* is my beloved Son, in whom I have found my delight: hear him.”

Matthew 17:8 And lifting up their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus alone.”

John 13:6-10He comes therefore to Simon Peter; and *he* says to him, Lord, dost thou wash *my* feet?Jesus answered and said to him, What I do thou dost not know now, but thou shalt know hereafter.Peter says to him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, Unless I wash thee, thou hast not part with me.Simon Peter says to him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.10 Jesus says to him, He that is washed all over needs not to wash save his feet, but is wholly clean; and ye are clean, but not all.”

Acts 10:9-16And on the morrow, as these were journeying and drawing near to the city, Peter went up on the house to pray, about the sixth hour.10 And he became hungry and desired to eat. But as they were making ready an ecstasy came upon him:11 and he beholds the heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending, as a great sheet, [bound] by [the] four corners [and] let down to the earth;12 in which were all the quadrupeds and creeping things of the earth, and the fowls of the heaven.13 And there was a voice to him, Rise, Peter, slay and eat.

14 And Peter said, In no wise, Lord; for I have never eaten anything common or unclean.15 And [there was] a voice again the second time to him, What God has cleansed, do not *thou* make common.16 And this took place thrice, and the vessel was straightway taken up into heaven.”
