Stripped Away

The mob comes, riled up and determined. They grab Jesus and arrest Him. Peter, full of bravado, draws his sword and slashes wildly into their midst.

He knows Jesus, knows what He is capable of. So he flies into the fray. A shout. Perhaps lightning from the sky. Surely God will scatter His enemies.

And then, He doesn’t. So they flee.

In the midst of trials, when God doesn’t work as we think He should, when all is stripped away, will we stand and trust Him or turn our backs and flee?

But failure is not the end
