Do you ever have those times when you open your mouth without thinking, mess up, or let others down? Peter was notorious for it, and it's what led to him abandoning his best friend, Jesus.
Peter loved Jesus, so he felt horrible when he pretended to not know him. He thought it was all over when Jesus died.
Jesus isn't like our other friends. He wants to forgive us when we are truly sorry, even when we keep messing up again and again. Since Jesus died and rose again, He can. His death took away the punishment for all of Peter's mistakes, and all of our mistakes too. His resurrection is the proof that the penalty was lifted.
After the resurrection, Jesus found Peter and forgave him, and He can do the same for us. Peter spent the rest of his life telling others they can put their trust in Jesus, and experience His forgiveness.
Children know all about messing up, but they don't always grasp true forgiveness. This book points them to Jesus, the one who will forgive them again and again.
