Peter once had trouble grasping his faith. He denied Christ, was uncertain of the resurrection, and went back to fishing. Jesus Himself had to come and find Peter and talk to Him. So He met Peter where he was. Now, Peter is an old man, and he traveled from Jerusalem to Rome because he wanted to take the Gospel there. One of the things Peter was awestruck about, was that when He encountered many believers, He saw the love that they had for Jesus, even though they never physically encountered Him. When you realize how much God loves you, it changes you. "What?" you may say. "He loves me like that????" Love is engaging, investing, making time, spending time, and is proven by showing up. Since God loves us, He asks us to do the same with each other.
