I Will Choose Christ.

“Peter said to him,
“Master, why can I not follow you now?
I will lay down my life for you.”
Jesus answered, “Will you lay down your life for me?
Amen, amen, I say to you, the cock will not crow
before you deny me three times.””

Doesn’t this just cut right to our soul? We know how much Peter loved Jesus, how could this happen? Well…how does it happen in our own lives? We, who vow to live and die for Him. We too turn away from Him and deny Him on a regular basis. I know that I do. None more apparent then on this Lenten Season. How many vows have I made to Him, only to ‘fall asleep’ and not follow through. Why would He EVER choose a bunch of fools like us to serve Him in any capacity?Peter…the same one mentioned above…will become the First Pope! What?! Doesn’t make sense…does it? But maybe, just maybe that is THE requirement for a life of Holiness…not accomplishing everything perfectly…that is God’s job. But being willing to try (and to fail) and being fully dependent on God’s grace (which requires us to know our own limitations).

“A willing and humble heart, I pray that you will find in me.”
