Failure never has to be the final word on our life. Peter failed Jesus. To fail Jesus can be bad enough, but for Jesus to then look directly at you after failing had to be overwhelming. Peter wept bitterly. Nevertheless, Peter’s failure and his restoration became a defining moment.
Throughout our life we have seen many changes, faced many trials, and enjoyed many blessings, and God has been faithful through every circumstance! Even when we sin, God is faithful! The faithfulness of Christ to live a perfect life and die a sacrificial death allows us to truly experience the message of Christmas.
