TALK: Consider some of these ideas:
One of the slaves of the high priest, … asked, “Did I not see you in the garden with him?” Again Peter denied it, and at that moment the cock crowed. (John 18:26-27)
It’s a dark night for Jesus—taken by force, and now required to defend himself to the authorities. If there’s one thing he could use, it’s the support of his closest followers. But at a time when all are about to be tested, even that might be too much to ask.
- What lies are being told that are so subtle that our culture accepts them as truth? How might you uncover some of those lies for yourself? How might you change your mind about what you believe?
- Wonder: How did Peter feel when he realized what he had done? How would you feel?
PRAY: Holy Lord, your mercy is infinite and your forgiveness sure. Be patient with us when we fail you, and renew your promises within our sorrowful hearts, to the glory of your name, Amen
BLESS: May God walk with you, even in your darkest moments. Amen.
