How you react to situations in life will determine your result. No doubt that there will be circumstances that want to make us scream and make quick decisions, and that situation might seem so overwhelming that you feel it’s over for you. Before you make that life-changing discussion, please continue reading this post and get inspired.
Peter and Judas were both Jesus’s followers and witnessed all the miracles Jesus performed until the day of his crucifixion.
On that day of Jesus’s interrogation, there came a woman who confronted Peter. Are you not one of Jesus’s disciples?
Peter panicked and denied being one of the disciples and denied Jesus three times. When the cock crows, he remembers what Jesus told him.
Judas, on the other hand, was Jesus’ treasurer and was among the twelve disciples, but because of greed, he ended up betraying Jesus.
The lesson in both stories is how they reacted to their mistakes.
Peter realized his mistakes and wept, and immediately begged for forgiveness.
Judas was so disappointed in himself, that Judas made a harsh decision and hung himself. He forgot everything about the teaching of Jesus. He forgot that God’s grace is sufficient for everyone.
Here is my question. How do you react to that mistake, disappointment, humiliation, and shame? Do you think and ask God for mercy and forgiveness, or are you too harsh with yourself and rush to a conclusion?
I pray that you find God’s mercy, grace, and hope in all your life situations.
God is good. He sent his only beloved son to die for us so that we all will have life and have it abundantly.
Call on God, He is merciful and gracious, and your life will never remain the same.
