Lent Day 25

Today’s Bible Reading:
Matthew 26:31-35

Jesus Predicts Peter’s Denial
31On the way, Jesus told them, “Tonight all of you will desert me. For the Scriptures say,
‘God will strike the Shepherd,
and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.’
32But after I have been raised from the dead, I will go ahead of you to Galilee and meet you there.”
33Peter declared, “Even if everyone else deserts you, I will never desert you.”
34Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, Peter—this very night, before the rooster crows, you will deny three times that you even know me.”
35“No!” Peter insisted. “Even if I have to die with you, I will never deny you!” And all the other disciples vowed the same.

Devotional Reading:

We have now read the perspective of Peter’s denial of Jesus from 3 different authors – John, Luke and Matthew. Each of them have given a slight variation in how they tell the story.

Matthew shares how Jesus quoted from the scriptures that the prophets wrote saying that all of them would scatter. We also see that he mentions being raised from the dead and meeting them again in Galilee.

Today’s reading is short and simple.

Could we all spend a few moments praying about what we have learned so far from our study?

Lord, help us to realize the importance of what you taught in your last days on earth. Open our eyes and hearts to living through the lens of your teachings. Show us how to love the unlovable. Give us a refreshed boldness to reach out to the lost. Help us be wise in using what you have given us – all to impact your kingdom every single day that we’re given on earth.

  1. What strikes me here is that even when Jesus was delivering the sober news that he was going to die AND that the disciples would desert and deny him, he gave them the message of Hope that he would go before them to Galilee. There is always that hope to keep us going, if we out our trust in him, he always goes before us to prepare the way. What an amazing Savior!
