Peter denied Jesus, exactly what he said he would not do.
How many times have we said we would or wouldn’t do something for the Lord but then did the opposite?
We do not know the deceitfulness of our own hearts.
Jesus used the crowing of the rooster to send a message to Peter.
Three messages in the crowing of the rooster that encourage us when we feel defeated and a failure:
- The message of reassurance.
- Jesus reminds Peter that Jesus is Lord, and He wants to be Lord of our lives.
- Jesus has complete control over our lives.
- Even when I am not faithful, He is always faithful.
- The message of repentance.
- Satan encourages us to sin.
- Pride is always the beginning of trouble.
- Peter resisted, argued with, and forgot God’s Word.
- We hurt Jesus when we sin, but He still loves
- The message of renewal.
- The rooster announces the dawning of a new day.
- Jesus offers us the chance of a new day in His light and forgiveness.
