The soldiers were closing in on them. The disciples turned to Jesus….”They’re going to take you! Do you want us to kill them?”
Peter didn’t wait for Jesus’ reply. He sliced the ear off of a man.
The disciples realized that they needed the guidance of The Lord. They did good to ask Him what they should do in the situation they were facing.
But Peter wasn’t willing to wait on an answer from Jesus. He decided to ignore The Lord and rely on himself.
Peter made the wrong choice.
Usually we can all be found calling on The Lord. We seek out Jesus because we believe that He knows exactly the right way to respond.
But how often can we be found waiting for The Lord’s response?
Call on Jesus. And then wait for His answer.
