Ecc 5-8; Matt 26:36-end; Psalm 94
Peter thrice denies Jesus with his lips . . . but what of his heart?
In the end when Jesus speaks with Peter upon the shore of Galilee, his enquiry is not over his words – it is of his heart.
We may readily say, we would never deny Christ . . . with our lips.
But what of our hearts? Peter leaves everything to follow Jesus – his heart is right, even if his courage failed him, he truly loves Jesus. What have we left for the sake of our Lord? We may well honour him with our lips, but what do our lives say? Are our hearts given to other gods?
