From fisherman to follower, Peter’s life took some wild, adventurous turns. As a fisherman, he had it pretty good. Enough to feed his family, while enjoying the great outdoors.
But then Peter met Jesus—and it flipped his life upside down.
From the start, Jesus had big plans for Peter and his faith. Jesus gave him the name Peter, which means “rock,” and told him: “Follow me, and I will make you fish for men.” Instead of fish, Peter would learn to seek out people and teach them to follow Jesus!
And Peter did! He gave up everything to follow Jesus, the man he knew to be the Messiah, the Son of the Living God. Peter was so strong and stubborn that he often messed up—but Jesus forgave him every time. It gave Peter the courage to keep going, no matter. After Jesus died and returned to life, Peter even became one of the most influential leaders of the early church.
We’re still talking about Peter and reading his writings today. And just like Peter, the “rock,” we can trust that Jesus will always be there for us. No matter what we face, we can keep going, because we have a Savior who loves us unconditionally.
Let’s ROCK ON this summer, and share Jesus with the world!
