Jesus Turned And Looked At Peter

A reading based on Luke 22:61

Jesus turned and looked straight at Peter
Straight at him
Eye to eye
Heart to heart
Soul to soul.

How did Jesus look at you Peter?
Was it just because you failed?
Or because you had been so cock sure?
So brave
So confident
So sure of yourself
So sure you didn’t need anyone else
So sure you forgot you needed God
So cock sure
It needed a cockerel
To get through to you.

How did Jesus look at you Peter?
You will soon find out on the beach
How did Jesus look at you Peter?
You will know when He asks if you love Him
How did Jesus look at you Peter?
You will know when he says feed my sheep
How will you respond Peter?
You will soon find out at Pentecost.

How does Jesus look at me when I fail?
How does Jesus look at you when you fail?
Remember Peter
Remember
Remember.
