But Peter answered strongly, “I will never say I don’t know you! I will even die with you!” And all the other followers said the same thing.
— Mark 14:31 ERV (Read Full Text)
Peter’s bravado was not a solo performance. All the followers of Jesus felt that they would follow him to whatever fate awaited them. Little did they know that they would all forsake and run away. How sad! How true to life! When we look in Scripture, we find quite a number of people who lost their way and their loyalty to the LORD. How wonderful that the Lord found a way to reclaim so many of them! May he do so with us! May we do so with others!
LORD, make me an instrument of your reconciliation. Use me to bring back those who have lost their way. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
