Then Jesus told them, 'This very night you will all fall away on account of me, for it is written: ''I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.' But after I have risen, I will go ahead of you into Galilee.' Peter replied, 'Even if all fall away on account of you, I never will.'
Oh the sorrow Peter must have felt. I don't even have the physical look of Christ's disappointment to look me in the eye as Peter did. And yet, he does look at me and he sees beyond the physical. Right into my heart, into my soul. I feel the sorrow of him looking at me when I do something that he wouldn't like. When I don't corral a thought or when I don't do something I should. I'm so glad he has arisen!
