15Simon Peter and another disciple* followed Jesus. Now the other disciple was known to the high priest, and he entered the courtyard of the high priest with Jesus.16But Peter stood at the gate outside. So the other disciple, the acquaintance of the high priest, went out and spoke to the gatekeeper and brought Peter in.17Then the maid who was the gatekeeper said to Peter, “You are not one of this man’s disciples, are you?” He said, “I am not.”18Now the slaves and the guards were standing around a charcoal fire that they had made, because it was cold, and were warming themselves. Peter was also standing there keeping warm. John 18:15-18

5Great is our Lord, vast in power, with wisdom beyond measure. Psalm 18:5

Our first denial from Simon Peter as the maid of the gate keeper pointed out that he was one of his disciples as Peter stated I am not. Even the first leader of the church was afraid for his life was willing to deny the man that brought him such pleasure knowing that he was the one and only Messiah that gave each and every human Salvation. It is human nature that drew him to the fire made by the people standing around with the maid wanting to stay warm in a sense selfishness unwilling to cross the gates line for the fear of being arrested. Many of us feel this in so many ways as we deny Christ as only a human can yet we begin to understand that there is a measure of Wisdom that is beyond our power and is only given to the vastness of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Join us in our daily prayer of forgiveness. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and Rose for me. Novena Day Four for my brother-in-law Johnny and good friend Robert. IN Jesus Name. Amen.

Following Christ Peter

Following Christ Peter
Jesus foreknew denial
Messiah wasn’t sweeter
Hot coal fire

Other disciple known
Priest high allowed
Gatekeeper he’d shown
Peter in aloud

You disciple too
Maid gatekeeper said
Not I ensued
Peter denied instead

Jesus had said
Fire charcoal prone
Warmth Peter misled
Jesus had foreknown
