It is common for people to encourage one another with the saying, “believe in yourself,” but examples from Scripture show these to be empty words. Peter stated his belief that he was incapable of denying Christ and soon learned the bitter truth of what was really in his heart. Despite Peter’s betrayal, Jesus still loved him unconditionally. In this message from John 13, Alistair Begg challenges us to turn away from self-reliance and to see ourselves in the light of Christ’s selfless love.
