LESSONS FROM PETER

Peter of Galilee, zealous and rugged, forsaker of nets, fisher of men! This sturdy disciple, to whom the Christian church owes so much, began his career with many human frailties. But his underlying motive was right; and his record remains to show us that whatever we have said and done or left unsaid or undone, we are not unhealable. We too can progressively prove that the good we would, we do; and the evil we would not, we do not. Christian Science shows us exactly how to do this, revealing the reality of the good we desire to express and the unreality of the evil we are determined not to manifest.

Peter's denial of the Master was threefold. First he implied that he had not been with Jesus; then that he was not his follower. Finally he said that he did not even know him (see Matt. 26:69–75).
