Re: Verse reading–Luke 22:31-34, 54-62 (day two) But he said to Him, “Lord, with You I am ready to go both to prison and to death!” 3:33
Petrus – rock. If there is one disciple who you would have picked to stand beside Jesus until the bitter end it probably would have been Peter. Strong, loud, prone to action not cowardice, and yet when the moment came – he froze. In the midst of the chaos Peter forgot about Jesus, and focused on his own safety.
Paul understood: For the good that I want, I do not do, but I practice the very evil that I do not want. Romans 7:19 When the rubber meets to road and we are called into account, we must not rely on our own strength for the moment. If we think we are strong enough we must remember Peter. God knows our every weakness, and he desire to be the unbending source of strength in times of trial. Never forget that.
