A thought for today - 18 October 2011

Luke 22:34
But Jesus said, "Peter, let me tell you something. Before the rooster crows tomorrow morning, you will deny three times that you even know me."

It is one of the easiest things to do, to deny that you know Jesus. Peter did it and he followed Jesus every day. Just as Peter was facing a typical worldly situation and came into a position where he was challenged he chose to deny Jesus.
In our daily lives, how many times don’t we deny Jesus in the circumstances that we face. Is it when among friends, or is it when we are in trouble or even when we travel to work. Is it when we look at other or when we are supposed to help or lend a hand? It can be so many places.

It is so important that you ask Jesus to give you strength in these situations so you don’t deny Him. What you must remember is that He is always with you and rising up in difficult situations brings glory to God and can possibly touch the hearts of those that need’s to find Him.

It is in us that people see Jesus.

To God be all the glory
