“I would die for you before I would deny you!”
On its own this bold statement that Peter made to Jesus seems commendable. It seems self-sacrificing.
Until you realize that it is a direct response to a Word from Christ. He had just said: “you will leave me.”
Peter just as well should have responded “You don’t know what you’re talking about Jesus. You don’t know me. And apparently you don’t know the future.”
Have you ever given that type of a response to Jesus? One in which you refuse to acknowledge Him as all knowing?
If you’re denying His will for your life you are communicating to Him that you don’t trust His plan, His provision.
Peter failed miserably when he went against our Lord. Learn from his mistake. Trust Jesus’ Word as infallible truth.
