John 18:15-18, 25-27
He started off so strong. “I’ll die for you.” He followed up boldly. “I’ll cut off his ear for you.” He finished boldly. “I am one of His followers!”.
But that was not the case. Now, we do not have his words saying he’d cut off Malchus’s ear, but we have the action. But we do know he did not finish this time well. Instead of admitting he followed Jesus, he denied Him. Not once, but multiple times. Does that mean Peter wasn’t yet a “true” believer? And if so, how could he deny Jesus? And if so, can we deny Him today?
Join us as we wrestle with a tough one. And walk away encouraged!
