Don’t Deny

Re:Verse passage – John 18:15-18, 25-27 (day two) “You are not also one of this man’s disciples, are you?” He said, “I am not.” vs. 17b

Taking a hard look at our own journey, we deny Christ countless times, and rarely, if ever, are we publicly castigated for it. We deny him when we are dishonest, when we are unkind or unfair. We deny him when we do not confess sin that we know is impacting our testimony. We deny him when we fail to witness with a lost soul. We deny him daily.

Thanks be to God that this is not the end of our story. It was not the end of Peters. We just finished a study with the redeemed and restored Apostle Peter and his incredible letter speaking of how to treat others and to embrace the sufferings of Christ. Do not let the denials define you. They didn’t define Peter. Let us be defined by the restorative power of Jesus to be more like him every day.
