  2. LIVING IN DENIAL

  3. Meanwhile, Peter was sitting outside in the courtyard. A servant

    girl came over and said to him, “You were one of those with Jesus the Galilean.” But Peter denied it in front of everyone. “I don’t know what you’re talking about,” he said. Matthew 26:69–75 (NLT)
  4. Later, out by the gate, another servant girl noticed him

    and said to those standing around, “This man was with Jesus of Nazareth.” Again Peter denied it, this time with an oath. “I don’t even know the man,” he said. A little later some of the other bystanders came over to Peter and said, “You must be one of them; we can tell by your Galilean accent.” Peter swore, “A curse on me if I’m lying—I don’t know the man!” And immediately the rooster crowed. Matthew 26:69–75 (NLT)
  5. Suddenly, Jesus’ words flashed through Peter’s mind: “Before the rooster

    crows, you will deny three times that you even know me.” And he went away, weeping bitterly. Matthew 26:69–75 (NLT)

  8. JESUS IS NO LONGER ON TRIAL… WE ARE!

  9. Instead, you must worship Christ as Lord of your life.

    And if someone asks about your hope as a believer, always be ready to explain it. But do this in a gentle and respectful way. 1 Peter 3:15–16 (NLT)
  10. So then, since Christ suffered physical pain, you must arm

    yourselves with the same attitude he had, and be ready to suffer, too. For if you have suffered physically for Christ, you have finished with sin. You won’t spend the rest of your lives chasing your own desires, but you will be anxious to do the will of God. 1 Peter 4:1–2 (NLT)
