Who are we?
Luke 22: 68 – 71, John 18: 28 – 38, luke 23 :2
If you’re an avid reader or like to watch TV or movies that depict courtroom drama, todays message is just that. Behind the scenes the Jewish religious leaders are breaking all kinds of laws in order to try and lynch Jesus, but in the same moment they are trying to keep their murderous hands clean for a Passover dinner date at 6pm that day. Then you have Pilate the gentile ruler of Palestine who now gets Jesus handed to him to figure out, is he really revolutionary or not, or is He really innocent, what away to start your morning off to deal with this political landmine.
The Bible tells of countless people and even the nation of Israel of having epic fails and then being restored to once again be the light and example of the Lord. When we fail it can be fatal if we let ourselves and the enemy get the better of us, but we see in the case of Peter, that his faith had been truly grounded in Christ and so he was able to return to the Lord, in much humility and was wide open to be used by the Lord, much to Peters surprise.
Epic Fails – you can watch countless videos or look up failed tattoo’s that have been misspelled or the wrong graphic, but what do we do when we fail in our lives. How do we respond or recover for that matter. How do we react when people fail in life. Well Peter, one of the 12 disciples and the unofficial leader of the 12, had a classic meltdown, some have called him a coward, yet I want us to reflect with charity and compassion, chances are we may have done the same thing too.
As children we are taught to always say please and thank you, but it is often easy to forget this when praying.
This message reminds us of the importance of saying thank you to God and recognizing His goodness through praise. Prayers of thanks are pleasing to God all the time, and we truly have so much to be thankful for.
