Jesus then said to the Twelve, ‘Do you also want to leave?’ Simon Peter answered him, ‘Master, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and are convinced that you are the Holy One of God.’”
Sensing what is going on inside the disciples, notice how gently questions them about their inner reality.
In view of all he heard Jesus just say, what might Peter have been experiencing at this time?
Peter said, “We have come to believe and are convinced that you are the Holy One of God.” When might you have known what Jesus wanted for you but hesitated because it was hard?
Heritage word—“Let us always put all our confidence in our good Father who is in heaven.”
