“Peter told Him ‘If everyone runs away, I will never run away. Jesus replied him “I assure you, Peter before the rooster crows you will have denied me three times” Matthew 26:33-34
Peter from the above text can be likened to believers who rely on their love for God instead of relying on God’s love for them. Such believers eventually get knocked down in times of adversity and stand the risk of even denying the Faith. Our love for God is good but it must never be placed above God’s love for us! As believers, we are to always exercise great confidence in God’s love for us, not vice versa!
