U-Turns Allowed


“And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus looked at him, He said, You are Simon the of Jonah. You shall be called Cephas which is translated, A Rock.” John 1:42.

There is hardly a busy street through which you can drive without seeing the familiar sign No U-turn. Is that a law of life? Well, at first thought it may seem so. As much as we often would like to turn back the sands of time and relive weeks, months, and years, we know that is impossible. Time lived cannot be lived over again. It is a law of life. Habits were formed, decisions were made, and the pace was set.
Can’t even direction be reversed? The Christian faith immediately leaps to its feet and declares with great joy that indeed changing one’s course is a part of the gospel program.
Do you remember the first meeting of Jesus and Peter? Jesus just looked at Peter and said, “So you are Simon, the of Jonah? Well, from now on you will be called The Rock.” In imagination we can step into the circle of Peter’s acquaintances. We can visualize the looks of unbelief on the faces of those who knew him best. I am quite sure that a number of amused glances were exchanged among the ones who knew Simon. Imagine calling him a rock! He was the most impetuous, reckless friend they had. I suppose that even Peter himself wondered at the Master’s greeting. Probably he hoped that it would be so; but I am sure he had doubts.
However, today, having read the record of Peter’s life in the Bible, we know that Jesus was right. Peter made a U-turn and started traveling in the opposite direction from where he was first headed. This did not happen all at once; it took time, with a lot of praying, falling, and repenting on Peter’s part and much grace on the part of our Lord.
If today you are looking for a place where you can make a U-turn, then look up and find Jesus. He will take you by the hand and lead you in the right direction.

May the Lord bless you and keep you
