Talon’s Point of the Day – May 3rd, 2015 When Christ Breaks Us

I believe Christ asking Peter if he loved Him 3 times was to help him ultimately heal from denying his Savior 3 times and uproot a seed of rebellion in him, but at the time it was clearly painful to Peter to the point of anguish. When our Lord forces us to confront our failure and sin the act of rooting the seeds of rebellion is a surgery for which there is no anesthesia. The process can often leave us temporarily broken. But it is from here that Christ collects the pieces that are valuable and restores and makes us new creations in him, free of a little less of ourselves each time it occurs.
