What Is Your Most Embarrassing Moment?

Mark 14.27-31
And Jesus said to them, “You will all fall away, for it is written, ‘I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered.’ But after I am raised up, I will go before you to Galilee.” Peter said to him, “Even though they all fall away, I will not.” And Jesus said to him, “Truly, I tell you, this very night, before the rooster crows twice, you will deny me three times.” But he said emphatically, “If I must die with you, I will not deny you.” And they all said the same.
Peter remembered this moment for the rest of his life. How stupidly he had promised what he so miserably failed to do. Yet his most embarrassing moment afforded the greatest lesson of his life. He learned the gospel here, that “God so loved” even disciples who fail. Your life includes some real blunders, too. Do you hear God’s loving assurance? Do you feel God picking up the pieces? Do you sense the grace? It’s easy to imagine that Peter told many people about the gospel by using this story, his own most embarrassing moment. Perhaps you should tell others of God’s patience with you. Your mistake plus God’s grace equals the wonderful story of salvation.
