Juxtaposed next to the flamboyant declaration by Peter’s willingness to lay down his life for Christ, Jesus gives a clear invitation: “trust also in me”. Peter was careless, over-promising and sorely under-delivering. Jesus was markedly different.

Our Lord never under-promised. Instead, he declared promises with precision. What he accurately would do, he spoke clearly.

His example should be our pattern. As Christ was, so we should also strive to be. Be people of our word. Tell the truth. Keep our promises. Give our affirmation to what the Spirit leads us to do. Simple. Powerful. Consistent. Jn14
