Luke 22

Today we are reading Luke 22. In this chapter we read about the night when Jesus was betrayed. “Then they seized him and led him away, bringing him into the high priest’s house, and Peter was following at a distance. And when they had kindled a fire in the middle of the courtyard and sat down together, Peter sat down among them. Then a servant girl, seeing him as he sat in the light and looking closely at him, said, “This man also was with him.” But he denied it, saying, “Woman, I do not know him.” And a little later someone else saw him and said, “You also are one of them.” But Peter said, “Man, I am not.” And after an interval of about an hour still another insisted, saying, “Certainly this man also was with him, for he too is a Galilean.” But Peter said, “Man, I do not know what you are talking about.” And immediately, while he was still speaking, the rooster crowed. And the Lord turned and looked at Peter. And Peter remembered the saying of the Lord, how he had said to him, “Before the rooster crows today, you will deny me three times.” And he went out and wept bitterly.” ‭‭Luke‬ ‭22:54-62‬ ‭ESV‬‬ This sad series of events records Peter and Jesus at a very low time. Peter loved Jesus and was willing to die for him…until he wasn’t. Jesus never stopped loving Peter. Isn’t it comforting to know that God’s love for us us is steadfast even when ours isn’t? If you are struggling in your faith, be comforted in knowing God is not struggling to love you. May He give you a gentle reminder of His love today! Pastor Tim
