Matthew 26:33 - Even if all fall away...

NIV Peter replied, "Even if all fall away on account of you, I never will."
KJV Peter answered and said unto him, Though all men shall be offended because of thee, yet will I never be offended.


What confidence Peter had when he said this to Jesus! How many times have we made proclamations that rival this when we feel inspired? Yet when we feel overwhelmed by our circumstances, we too, can buckle under the pressure. But pressure is God's way to reveal what is in our hearts. The good news is that even when Peter made this statement, Jesus knew what would happen. He was prepared to take Peter down a path that went past his bravado and into the reality of his soul. Peter's failure was already in God's providence - as was the forgiveness that Peter experienced from the resurrected Christ. Peter stands as a witness of how God shows us our heart so that He can heal us from our present condition and set us free from our past failures.
