Peter is one of my favorite disciples in the Bible. Loud, mouthy, impulsive, Peter and I have a few things in common. He even had the nerve once to tell Jesus that He had things all wrong, and Peter knew better. God needed to do things HIS way. (Matthew 16:21-23)
And yet Peter was the only disciple who walked on water. He was the one to whom God revealed Jesus’ true identity. And despite all of his sins and his weaknesses, God still used Peter in a great way for His glory.
If you feel that you can’t be used by God because of your struggles or sins, read the gospel stories about the imperfect Peter. God wants to use all of us – imperfect as we are – to further His Kingdom. You can read more about Peter in my article here.
