We really never see our own sinfulness until we see the goodness of Jesus. It is at that point in time when we realize just how unworthy we are to be in His presence. Peter had that moment when he realized who was in his presence, Jesus of Nazareth, the Son of the Almighty God.
It isn’t until our conversion that we truly realize our own sinful state. Peter’s heart was changed when he met Jesus, the Jewish Messiah, that was promised to come save His people from their sin. It is my prayer today that Jesus will reveal to us our own depravity, that we may fall at His feet and plead for mercy and forgiveness. Jesus is the only hope for sinful man. Call on Him today.
