Mark 14-16 Peter is one of the strongest and perhaps the weakest disciple. He announces he will not fail Christ in the time of testing, but his words fall on fallow ground. Christ reminds him that he will not only fail but also fail miserably. We equate with Peter because we, too, when faced with challenges to our faith and identification with Christ, resoundingly fail. 🙁 Yet, as Peter reviews this section, you can see Peter never forgot these words: “But go, tell his disciples, even Peter, ” [Mark 16:7] How gracious is our Lord.
Even when we fail, He is there to call us back into service.
Jesus knows the truth of our heart.
Where am I today? Where are you?
