Matthew 26 continued
Jesus Predicts Peter's Denial
31 Then Jesus told them, "This very night you will all fall away on account of me, for it is written:" 'I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.'
32 But after I have risen, I will go ahead of you into Galilee."
33 Peter replied, "Even if all fall away on account of you, I never will."
34 "I tell you the truth," Jesus answered, "this very night, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times."
35 But Peter declared, "Even if I have to die with you, I will never disown you." And all the other disciples said the same.
And all the other disciples said the same. How quickly we pledge our allegiance. How quickly we fall away. There is great hope though; "after I have risen..."
Jesus is saying; "listen to my statements - you will disown me, I will rise" We can continue to count on His words today.
