Quick Thought: We’re Not All Jumping From Mountain Top To Mountain Top Here, People!

Don’t let failures throw you off mission.

We all have moments of glorious victory and stinging defeat.

Before Peter fell into the ocean, he walked on it. And just weeks after he denied Christ, he preached the seminal message of the Christian faith (other than Jesus, of course!)

Like us, when Peter relied on his own strength, he failed. When he kept his eyes on Christ and relied on the power of the Holy Spirit, he was bold and effective.

“…Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
– Hebrews 12:2

Don’t give up! Fix your gaze and press on!
