Repeat (Dictionary):To do or make again, to say again, to say over, recite. Repeat (Bible):To repeat, do again, to speak. The Apostle Peter seemed to have a knack of getting himself into trouble or needing Jesus to speak about a subject three times! It shows us that our heavenly Father has great patience. He wants us to understand-even when it may take a few experiences to drive home His point. Let’s look at Peter in his “3-Pete” experiences: John 13: 5-10: 5Then He poured water into the basin, and began to wash......
