The nature of true discipleship is discovered through the failures and victories of Peter.
Peter, the once wobbly disciple, who seemed so often to be the victim of his impulsive behavior and his brash declarations of loyalty soon repudiated, is all too representative of us all. Human frailty is a universal problem to be reckoned with. But against such a background shine clear and glorious the grace of God, the redemption He has provided through Christ, and the power of the Holy Spirit working through committed lives. What God did for Peter, He can do for anyone whose commitment to Him is as complete. Paper.
