Many times, our faith deteriorates as our circumstances deteriorate. When that happens, our faith is quickly overcome by fear, and the future looks dark. The apostle Peter experienced this, and he temporarily fled his faith in Jesus.
When you find something really important, all of your values and priorities change... instantly. As Jesus lays out his vision for life, he describes a radically different system of value that is so counterintuitive that if we can visualize it, it would change everything about how we live.
