”Because of this many of his disciples turned back and no longer went about with him. So Jesus asked the twelve, ‘Do you also wish to go away?’ Simon Peter answered him, ‘Lord, to whom can we go? You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and know that you are the Holy One of God.”
Can you see that Peter was pure of heart in his response to the Lord? “To whom can we go? You have the words of eternal life.” Peter shows his absolute confidence in the Lord. His confidence may not be purely because his faith was unshakable. Nonetheless, Peter speaks his allegiance to God. And the result? Peter knows that there is nowhere else to go. Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Peter knows this is where he wants to be. Peter sees God.
