When I hear people say, “I like winners, not losers,” I am reminded of how different Jesus is from that. He loves failures.
Peter wasn’t disqualified from participating in God’s mission because of his failure.
It was his failure that opened the door to see the true nature of Jesus’ love. Knowing he was loved by Jesus regardless of his character flaws moved him to spend the remainder of his life tending the sheep that Jesus purchased with his blood.
I know you have failed. We are all in that category. Jesus wants to see you. He does not carry a scorecard. He eagerly wants you to know a kind of love that is foreign to unbelieving humans. His love satisfies our every longing and changes us from self-centered consumers to sheep-conscious disciples. Keep the appointment. You will never be the same.
