The Bible is full of good and encouraging words, but my thinking is that there are none sweeter, nor more encouraging, that the words, "And tell Peter." What a weight must have fallen from him as he heard those words.
It happened after women had been to the tomb where Jesus had been buried, bringing sweet spices for anointing Him. Isn't it interesting that it was now, at the tomb, that they finally wondered who would roll away the stone that closed the entrance! They meant well, but hadn't really thought out what they were hoping to do.
But, happily, the stone had already been rolled away... already showing that another prophecy had happened... that He was risen. Oh, there would be many who put up what I've called the "Biggest Lie." That believers had stolen his body and it was hidden somewhere. There are still those who use this kind of falsehood as they try not to believe in Him. Of course there are still persons who don't believe the world is round, but talk about blindness. Just as there are no atheists in wartime foxholes, I don't believe there are any real atheists. Time will tell the awful truth to them as they begin their time in hell.
But to the point of this article... Peter had told Jesus at their last meal together, how he would stand by Him at any cost. And within hours, he was denying Him, not once, but three times. And he then went out and "wept beggarly" (Luke 22:62). Surely he must have thought that God would never forgive him for such a terrible deed. Talk about the "unforgivable sin," he must have thought he had been guilty.
But no. The words "and tell Peter" showed that all was forgiven.
