What person in the Bible can you most relate to?

 If asked what person in the Bible that you remind yourself most of....who you can relate to the best....my answer would most definitely have to be Peter!!

Why?

Well....here are a few of his traits and you see if you can see any similarities....if you know me well, that is!!!

He was impulsive
He was head-strong
He was bull-headed
He was impulsive....oh, sorry....I've already said that once!!
;)

Yep....those are a few traits that Simon Peter and Deb have in common!!!
But....even though Peter was all those things....and he even went so far as to deny that he knew Jesus....Jesus still loved Peter.....so much so that Peter was the first apostle to witness the resurrection.  What a blessing for that our precious Lord who is so full of mercy and grace granted to Peter....who did not seem to deserve God's blessings.  
But....who am I to even begin to question God's outpouring of love on those who seem to be so undeserving....because....after all....He does the same for me every day!!!

Yep....I think Peter and I share a few of the same personality traits....which makes me even more glad....that God looks at my heart!!!

Psalm 44:21 
God would surely have known it,
      for he knows the secrets of every heart.
 

Happy Monday, Everybody!!!
In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!

  1. Good post, in some ways I think I'm like David. Believe but went and did things my way before returning.

  5. Deb, this is such a good post! I think I'm most like Martha at times and I want most to be like Mary. But I also admire Dorcas and I think I've become more like her in the last few years. She's my model. :o) It's so wonderful to use our skills and talents to bless others.

    Blessings,
    Donna

  7. I would say I most relate to Ruth. I am named after her, and I think my personality and character would be similar to hers.
