Despite what Jesus told them, Peter and the other disciples insisted that they would remain faithful and true to Him. They were certain even death could not cause them to deny and desert him.
“And they all forsook him, and fled” (Mark 14:50).
And later, this:
“And Peter called to mind the word that Jesus said . . . . And when he thought thereon, he wept” (72).
After such good intentions, such bitter defeat.
They were so human.
Just like I am.
May God help me to be faithful to Him at all costs all the time.
I need that every day because each day brings its own opportunities to fail.
