The Rock Fails His Master

Matthew 26:69–75

John Calvin says Peter’s rash vow to remain with the Lord (Matt. 26:33) and subsequent failure encourage us not to rely on our own weakness, but to earnestly rely on the Spirit. It is easy to say that we will never deny the Lord. But our flesh is weak, and we should not think ourselves strong apart from the strength He alone can give us. We have all denied Him in some way; let us therefore lean on His Spirit that we may never do so again.

For further study:

Jonah 1:1–3:5

The Bible in a year:

Ezekiel 41–42

For the weekend:
