Share this conversation starter with your LDS friend:

Friends, there are times when like you, I mess up—a lot. I stumble, fall short, and let Jesus down. But here’s what blows my mind: Jesus never abandons me in my mess. He extends his loving grace to me, even when I feel I least deserve it.

I can relate so much to Peter’s story. He denied Jesus not just once or twice but three times. And guess what? I’ve denied my Lord in my own ways too. My thoughts, words, and actions often fall short of his perfect standard. But you know what’s incredible? Jesus, in his boundless mercy, never gives up on me. Instead, he seeks me out, forgives me, and restores me.

I find so much comfort and joy in Peter’s story because it reveals the depths of Jesus’ love for us. He doesn’t hold our failures against us. Instead, he embraces us with open arms, offering forgiveness and reconciliation. He conquered sin and death through his death and resurrection, bringing us new life and hope.
