Dr. John MuhlfeldJune 5, 2022Passage: Luke 22:31-38
Peter was so vulnerable to Satan’s attack that he remained overconfident even after Jesus’ explicit warning. Likewise, when warned of the challenging days to come, the disciples largely misunderstood His point. But Jesus prayed for Peter and the disciples, just as He prays for us, that our faith would not fail. He died among the transgressors to reconcile us to God. As we underestimate our danger and overestimate ourselves, as we miss the point and miscalculate the cost, Jesus remains the gracious Savior in whom our life and hope are found.
