TUESDAY OF HOLY WEEK

Peter said to him, “Master, why can’t I follow you now? I will lay down my life for you.”
—John 13:37


Peter’s words to Jesus on the night before Calvary are painful to hear. We know where this story is headed, and it’s not in the direction of Peter making a noble choice. In the hour of crisis, Peter does what many of us will do: he saves himself at the expense of all other loyalties. It will take one more phenomenal miracle for Peter—as for us—to engage the kind of faith that allows for self-sacrifice.
