Christ comes to us in the midst of life. He does not wait until we get it all together.
He comes to us as we are. This means that He often finds us at our worst. But
remember, He does not come to accept us; He comes to forgive. He comes to
strengthen our faith and to renew our lives with His love.
This evening, as Jesus is tried by religious authorities, Peter is tried before servants
in a courtyard. Peter fails and falls. But Jesus remains firm, a foundation for all sinners.
He comes to Peter and renews his strength.
This evening, we remember the words and work of our Lord. He comes to us in the
midst of our weakness and sets us firmly upon the foundation of His love.
