The various business houses are always in constant search of best skills and talents. They travel across the globe in search of individuals with such calibre. Once they find one of its kind they immediately offer good packages in order to employ that individual.
Suppose, after the employment the individual consistently not performing well. Instead he turned out to be a liability. What do you think the organisation will do with this guy? I am sure that you would agree with me that he would be fired from the job.
Jesus Christ when he was walking on this earth was running a tiny little Bible school. He had a small bunch of 12 students. They were of different ages and backgrounds. Some were fishermen, some tax collectors, etc.
He had a most brilliant student, his name was Peter Simon. He was a most daring disciple. At the same time he was quick to respond to any question and situation. He was very promising disciple. Everyone thought that one day he would be the best team leader.
He was tested for his faithfulness. His test was predicted by Lord Jesus Christ himself.
Luke 22:31-32 NASBS
“Simon, Simon, behold, Satan has demanded permission to sift you like wheat;  but I have prayed for you, that your faith may not fail; and you, when once you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.”
The test was, Simon will have to identify himself with his master and teacher Jesus Christ in front of everyone. Jesus was falsely accused and condemned to death.
Simon was a bit a overconfident employee. He said that even if he has to die he will not deny Jesus. He failed the test miserably. He denied Jesus Christ not only once but thrice. It’s not only him but I have denied Jesus some times in my life as well.😰
After the death and resurrection Jesus Christ appeared to Peter. Everyone thought that Jesus Christ has given up on Peter. Jesus Christ shocked everyone. He not only pardoned him, he also appointed him as the shepherd over the first church in the history.
John 21:17 NASBS
He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love Me?” Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, “Do you love Me?” And he said to Him, “Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You.” Jesus said to him, “Tend My sheep.”
If I was in the place of Jesus Christ, I would have fired Peter for deserting his boss and organisation. Jesus Christ doesn’t approach like how we approach. He knew that one day Peter is going to be a great blessing to his organisation. Peter is still appreciated and respected all over the world since last 2000 years. Jesus Christ is still hiring people.
The reason behind the success of Peter’s life is the great confidence of Jesus Christ in Peter that he is a great employee. How are you dealing with your fellow employees? How are you dealing with fellow members of your family, friends, church or any other organisations?
May God help us to have patience towards others as Jesus Christ has towards us.
