A true story about how Peter failed and Jesus forgave
Do you ever talk before you think? Mess up? Let others down? That’s what Peter did, again and again and again, and it led him to abandoning his best friend, Jesus.
Peter loved Jesus. He felt terrible when he pretended not to know him. He thought all was lost when Jesus died.
But after he rose from the dead, Jesus went and found Peter and forgave him. He explained that his death took the punishment for all of Peter’s mistakes and that his resurrection showed that the penalty was lifted.
Peter spent the rest of his life telling people that if they put their trust in Jesus, they could be forgiven too—again and again and again.
Children know all about failing, but they don’t always experience true forgiveness. This book points them to Jesus, the friend who will forgive them again and again and again.

We don’t need to look like Peter or sound like Peter to find ourselves acting like Peter — saying foolish things to and about Jesus Christ. So it’s great to be reminded how Jesus is always a far better friend to us than we are to him. ~Sam Allberry,Speaker and apologist for Ravi Zacharias International Ministries
