Daily Bible Podcast Day 331 – Psalm 125, Matthew 26-27

September 27, 2013 in Podcasts by Nathan


“After a little while, those standing there went up to Peter and said, ‘Surely you are one of them; your accent gives you away.’

Then he began to call down curses, and he swore to them, ‘I don’t know the man!’

Immediately a rooster crowed. Then Peter remembered the word Jesus had spoken: ‘Before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times.’ And he went outside and wept bitterly.” ~Matthew 26:73-75

Just as Jesus had predicted, Peter disowns Jesus in public. Despite this, Jesus ultimately doesn’t hold it against him, and Peter goes on to be a great leader in the early church.

I have disowned Jesus, not with words, but with actions; by failing to do what Jesus would have had me do. I have also failed to acknowledge Him when I should have.

Father, like Peter, I have “disowned” Jesus. I know that You don’t hold that against me any more than You held it against Peter. Empower me to complete my mission as You empowered him. Help me to be more faithful in the future than I have been in the past and I will do my best to acknowledge Jesus when given the chance.
