Peter, as a disciple, had a penchant for learning through personal experiences. Do you share this inclination? This could be why Jesus chose to include Peter in His inner circle, which also consisted of John and James. Faith is cultivated by absorbing Jesus' teachings from the Bible and by witnessing God's audacious and courageous interventions in people's lives.
Peter imparts a lesson about faith in Jesus through his writings: "Through Him, you believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and glorified Him; and so, your faith and hope are in God." (1 Peter 1:21)
In this single, electrifying sentence, Peter unmistakably conveys the interconnectedness of faith and hope. They are inseparable. Your faith and hope find their anchor in God! Therefore, when you find yourself in a quandary, uncertain about your path, Peter advises that you embrace hope, speak of hope, and breathe hope. This is because the same God who resurrected Jesus and bestowed Him with glory will also uplift your despondent heart to new realms alongside God.
Just as Jesus took Peter alongside Him, He is with you now.
