Understanding the Concept: Jesus is Greater than Our Insignificance


Discover why ‘Jesus is greater’ matters; learn to embrace insignificance in his grand light.

Weekly Summary

This week on the Battle Drill Daily Devotional Podcast we are reminded that Jesus’ response to the people and disruptions around him are a challenge to remember that God’s plans often collide with our own. Each weekday we share hope and encouragement as we read and study the Bible together.


Sometimes, I am guilty of thinking the world revolves around me. That’s why I can often react badly to being interrupted. I need reminding that Jesus is greater than me.

A Reminder of Our Human Limitations

But in the middle of this story of Jesus interrupting some of the men who would become his disciples, we find an encounter between Simon Peter and Jesus that reveals a profound truth about recognising our own significance in comparison to the greatness of Jesus. This encounter serves as a powerful reminder of our human limitations and the overwhelming majesty of the Son of God. Apparently, the world does not revolve around me – of you for that matter!

In Luke 5:8, Simon Peter falls at Jesus’s feet, exclaiming, “Oh, Lord, please leave me—I’m such a sinful man.” These words encapsulate Peter’s profound realisation of the stark contrast between his sinful, imperfect nature and the holiness and greatness of Jesus. This moment of recognition signifies a crucial step in Peter’s journey of faith, acknowledging that he stood in the presence of someone far greater than himself.

Jesus is Greater

In our daily lives, we often find ourselves caught up in our own significance and achievements. We may pride ourselves on our accomplishments, our knowledge, or our good deeds. However, the encounter between Peter and Jesus reminds us that when we stand in the presence of the Almighty, our significance dims in comparison to his greatness. Our flaws and imperfections become apparent, and our need for his mercy and grace is undeniable.

Reflection Question:

How can we cultivate a heart like Simon Peter, recognising our own insignificance in the presence of Jesus’s greatness? What steps can we take to embrace humility and fully depend on His grace in our daily lives?
