What happens if I deny Jesus?
AUTHOR: Bill Gorman
Take time to reread the passage from Sunday. Review your notes. What is God bringing back to mind from His Word? Now listen in as Bill Gorman adds one more nuance we wish we could have shared on Sunday.
In this week’s sermon we looked at Peter’s denial of Jesus. And if Peter, who was with Jesus, part of his inner circle, promised to die with him — denied him when the pressure got intense — maybe you, like me, have wondered — what hope is there for me?
One passage that has always helped me here is 2 Tim 2:12-13.

Prayer tills the soil of the soul to receive the word of God. Take time today resting, delighting and listening to God in prayer. Take 10 minutes today to pray for God to speak afresh through His word, and that you would have “ears to hear and eyes to see” His truth and direction.
How does the resurrection change the way you look at ordinary problems? Does it? How can you grow there?
If we are not intentional, the Christian message of Jesus’ resurrection may be easily overshadowed or absorbed into the mix of the Easter Bunny, Easter egg hunts, pastel colors, and marshmallow Peeps. But as Christians, the resurrection of Jesus must be front and center in our Easter celebrations.
