No matterWhen St. Peter heard that Jesus was going somewhere, he wantedto follow the Lord. Jesus refused, and told the apostle that hewould follow later. Peter protested: He was willing to lay downhis life for Jesus (again something that he ultimately would dolater). Then Jesus dropped a bombshell: That very night, Peterwould deny him three times.
how pure our motives may seem, until we trust in God morethan we trust in ourselves, we are doomed to fail. To truly followJesus, we must unite ourselves with him and trust him totally.
