I've always identified myself with Peter. He had a bit of a mouth on him and it got him in trouble sometimes. lol He was bold and he spoke his mind. Out of everybody that was in the boat that day, Peter was the only one that wanted to get out of his "comfort zone" and step out in faith. He sliced off a man's ear to defend his Lord. The same man who took that drastic action later denied his Lord. If it came right down to the nitty gritty, would I deny my Lord? I would like to say no, but I will honestly never know for sure until I'm put in that situation. That's another reason I identify with Peter. I identify with David too. One because of his repentant heart and two, because he was a true praiser of God. He praised with instruments, with singing, with dancing....He didn't care what anybody thought about it; he loved God so much that he just couldn't contain it!
