The memory is so vivid to me. When I disobeyed my parents, I would get a good scolding from my mother, but my father would give me a certain look that said much more than words. Later, he would have words with me after I had time to think about what I had done. It was that look without words that got to my heart!
Peter loved the Lord. He said so just before Jesus was about to be falsely accused, judged and crucified; “Lord, I am ready to go with you both to prison and to death” (Luke 22:33). That bold statement was tested within hours as Jesus was arrested and Peter is recognized and identified as one of Jesus’ followers.
Then the awful moment came when Peter denied the relationship; “Man, I do not know what you are talking about” (22:60). As Jesus had told Peter, the rooster would crow on the third time that Peter denied Him. What Peter did not expect was the moment after the rooster alarm when “the Lord turned and looked at Peter. And Peter remembered the saying of the Lord” (22:61).
Have you felt the Lord look at you? That look is not one of condemnation, but love and desire that you be fully restored to an intimate relationship with Him. If that is true of you, let His look do the work of grace in your life.
