Later, out by the gate, another servant girl noticed him and said to those standing around, “This man was with Jesus of Nazareth. ” 72 Again Peter denied it, this time with an oath. “I don’t even know the man,” he said.
Peter is caught by his own words. We too get caught by our own words. We lie. We sin. We walk our own way. Christ is calling us to surrender. Walk with Him. Read His Word. Claim its promises. Remember its directives. Do what Jesus says. When you mess up go to Jesus, confess, read, pray, do and keep doing.
