"I thank God for the story of Peter. I know no other man in the Bible who gives greater comfort to the human frame. When we look at his character, so full of failures, and at what Christ made him by the power of the Holy Spirit, there is hope for every one of us. But remember, before Christ could fill Peter with the Holy Spirit and make a new creation of him, Peter had to acknowledge his frailty and his wrongdoing; he had to be humbled. To understand this, there are four points to consider: (1) Peter the devoted disciple of Jesus; (2) Peter as he lived the life of self; (3) Peter in his repentance; and (4) Peter’s deliverance from self."
