Scripture references: Jesus is the Messiah, Matthew 16:13-20; Peter’s betrayal, Luke 22:31-34; 54-62.
After Jesus was arrested Peter followed behind to where he was put on trial. Three times he said he did not know Jesus.
It wasn’t Jesus that I didn’t know –
it was Peter!
I knew he was the Messiah,
I knew he was the Son of God.
I thought I was someone special,
someone who would always be there.
I let him down,
I let him die
without his friend.
Let us pray for all who are unfaithful to their friends that they – that we – may have the strength to stand up for those we love and the courage to apologise and rebuild our friendships.
Jesus remember me, when you come into your Kingdom.
