Abstract We all love to beat up on Peter. He is unbridled, braggadocios, embarrassingly bold, and at times violent. However, he is also a man who was greatly used of God, to preach at Pentecost, to lead the Church at Jerusalem, to minister to the Church at Rome, to minister to suffering saints in Asia Minor. In other words, he is like us. He leans on self to minister at times and then has to turn again, or even be turned by Paul, to lean on grace. He is just a preacher. My friend, a chaplain who has been deployed twice in three years, a husband, father, godly man, never fails to listen to the soldier who drops in to talk about a family matter, or a job matter, or to just chat about a ball game. He is the kind of chaplain who sees ministry just beneath the surface of the old master sergeant who wants to talk about the Monday night football game or to laugh with the first lieutenant as he recounts his nervousness on his first Thanksgiving with his fiancé’s family. He is a good chaplain. But he is wondering about God’s call on his life. “What is God doing in my life, in my ministry? I just don’t know. ” These questions swirled around in his thoughts.
