 Peter's wavy line brings encouragement 
How very encouraging it is that Saint Peter, one of complex responses in the face of fearful circumstances, would be encouraged by our LORD Jesus to follow HIS lead and feed HIS sheep in the end. This sermon is such an encouragement to me as I find that my response in days that bring frightful news or events can reflect my wavy line of trying to fix things in my own power instead of seeking God's wisdom and following HIS lead. It is always good when my LORD and Master corrects me and directs me. Peter's life is an encouragement in that he ran the race to God's glory. In the end, I think the wavy line became straighter with the help of the Holy Spirit. Tozer's sermon hits the nail on the head when he spoke of being alone in the world, not belonging. The child going to preschool, or kindergarten for the first time and longing to be home, puts the predicament well.

Hi, I am my life i have seen a whole lot of contradictions.this message is encouraging that God can use anyone with any weakness. In short i want to say the message is sweet, precise, to the point, well documented with a powerful backup of sound theology.

 The man Peter and strangers 
My name is Peter and interestingly enough, I can realte to Peter living a life of contradictions. I am looking forward to this series on 1st Peter and feel that this Intro. Is worth listening to. Tozer also addresses how Christians are to live as strangers in this world and something was evoked in my spirit about the way to live here and even abroud as an stranger to those around; a peculiar people. I love the way this man teaches/preaches. Finally, I was a little disappointed that this was session was cut short.
