All Like Peter

John 21:7. Then the disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” So Simon Peter, when he heard that it was the Lord, tucked in his outer garment (for he had nothing on underneath it), and plunged into the sea.

Oh how I love Peter.  He is so impulsive.  The downside of being impulsive is we often act or speak before we think or consider the cost.  Peter is the one who said he would die with Jesus before he would dessert Him yet he denied His Lord 3 times in one night.  Many times we get wrapped up in the emotion of an event or relationship and plunge headlong without thinking or counting the cost.  How many times have we promised God or anyone else we would do something but we never follow it up?  Someone asks us to pray for something and we say we will.  We go on our way and quickly forget to pray.  It may be a visit, a phone call or a need at church but we fail.  Our question is do we recognize the Peter in each one of us?  Tomorrow we’ll read how our Lord deals with this issue.
