SoldOut for Christ, denying Christ
Good morning , so as doing a study with a few ladies this was a was a question asked
why did peter deny Jesus ?How do we deny Jesus?Matthew 26:30-35 Matthew 26:69-75
Well first I think fear was peters reason
He was afraid of what would happen to him as he seen the cost for following Jesus confessing Jesus as what was happening to Jesus himself
As for us this has been thought about
Have I ever denyed Jesus No !
Never denyed knowing him to anyone
But what got me thinking as reading peters story and thinking about this and thinking about life
Have we ever denyed him through our actions the choices we make ?
Things we know he don't like but do anyways for his word say if you love me you will obey me
Do we sin yes are we forgiven yes!
I think our choices our actions caused by different emotions pleasing our selfish wants
As to partaking in things of the world willfully sinning gone against what the Bible teaches us
Are we denying ? At a certain degree
Aren't we post to live being sold out for Jesus
Yes we make mistakes we sin we aren't perfect
But If we are striving to live for Jesus
Why do we willfully sin
Drinking ,cussing , gossip , drugs, affairs, and all that stuff we know is against God
How do you say your sold out for Jesus and still take part in this world?
Like we studied in ecc solomons teachings It's all meaningless
So today this is playing through my mind how do we truly and fully live sold out for Christ?!
Where does it stop , we see after peter denyed Christ he wept wept wept and wept more And after this it change peter at all costs he was sold out for Jesus
Followed him obeyed his word fished for men and never stoped Jesus costed peter his life.
