Does it scare you that someone so close to Jesus, his teaching and his miracles could decide to betray Jesus for some cash? I mean if someone so close to Jesus could do that, what about me? And then to read that Peter…the Rock…denied Jesus when Jesus needed him the most. What hope do I have at being the man Jesus called me to be. It’s humbling to know that he loves us and still chooses us even though he knows we will fail him.
