    Sometimes, truth is harsh.

    I love this. I think what helps me is to think that life is not fair, but God certainly is. Perfectly so. Now how can I say that when there’s so much obvious inequity in this world? And God allows it. So how is God fair? Well, His Kingdom is not of this world. God sent the very best He had in the person of His Son. His Son took upon Himself the sins of every human soul who has ever lived and will ever live. Total equity. He wants ALL to be saved. That’s the fairest act I can ever imagine. We all have the choice.

    Can you imagine Jesus telling you how you’re going to suffer and die? Good grief!

    I think I’d be asking the same question if I were Pete.

    A good word and true word, Michael. One day, this may all make sense, but for right now we cling to “follow me”, and pray that we don’t lose faith along the way.

    I’ve been pondering why Jesus would tell Peter how he would die. Peters reaction is an interesting contrast with the boldness he showed before Christ’s resurrection. Now he’s told he will suffer and die a brutal death for Christ’s sake and his reaction is a bit different. Yet he continues to follow Him. What a fascinating character study that shows the power of Christ in a very fallible human we can all identify with. Peter learned in the matter of years what may take me a lifetime to learn.
