Failure, not something we aspire to or want to admit. But the story of God’s people is rife with failure and God’s redemption. On Sunday, we looked at Peter’s dramatic failure, his thrice denial of Jesus. One might expect that that event was the last time we’d hear about Peter for he would be cut from God’s team. What we find though is a much larger story. This story reminds us that Christ CHOSE Peter, Christ CHALLENGED Peter, and Christ CALLED Peter to “Follow me.” His story is our story as we too confess, “I have not loved you with all my heart nor my neighbor as myself.”
