_ 041414 The word

What a wonderful day the Lord has presented us with. My hope is that each and every one of us uses this day to glorify the Lord and let others know how awesome He is in our individual lives. Remind someone that whatever trouble they might be going through, He’s able to remove all things that should not be.

Today’s Prayer

Dear heavenly Father, You created us to have fellowship with You. Let us come before You with rejoicing — not complaining, not questioning, not asking, not pleading, but realizing fully the privilege that is ours in being able to honor You with praise and thanksgiving. Help us to seek You for who You are, rather than for just what You can do for us. In the wonderful name of Jesus we pray. Amen.

Let’s eat.

A Few Looks of Jesus

Part 4

On the hardened sinner, Look of Pity

Luke 22:54-65

Peter Denies Jesus

  So they arrested him and led him to the high priest’s home. And Peter followed at a distance. The guards lit a fire in the middle of the courtyard and sat around it, and Peter joined them there. A servant girl noticed him in the firelight and began staring at him. Finally she said, “This man was one of Jesus’ followers!” But Peter denied it. “Woman,” he said, “I don’t even know him!” After a while someone else looked at him and said, “You must be one of them!” “No, man, I’m not!” Peter retorted. About an hour later someone else insisted, “This must be one of them, because he is a Galilean, too.” But Peter said, “Man, I don’t know what you are talking about.” And immediately, while he was still speaking, the rooster crowed. At that moment the Lord turned and looked at Peter. Suddenly, the Lord’s words flashed through Peter’s mind: “Before the rooster crows tomorrow morning, you will deny three times that you even know me.” And Peter left the courtyard, weeping bitterly. The guards in charge of Jesus began mocking and beating him. They blindfolded him and said, “Prophesy to us! Who hit you that time?” And they hurled all sorts of terrible insults at him.

Quote of the Day

The battles that count aren’t the ones for gold medals. The struggles within yourself – the invisible, inevitable battles inside all of us – that’s where it’s at.
