Jesus knows we are not perfect and He does not expect us to be perfect. In fact, He expects us to be imperfect. It is the exact reason why He came to die for our sins. Jesus’ interaction with Peter was a prime example of what His expectation are of us in Matthew 26:34, “I tell you the truth,” Jesus answered, “this very night, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times.” Even though Jesus knew Peter would disown Him, and even though this was obviously frustrating, it did not change who Jesus is or how He would react to His circumstances. Jesus came to sacrifice Himself for our sins and there is nothing Peter or anyone else could have done to change that; just like there is nothing we can do to change His love for us today.
