The Lord turned and looked straight at Peter.
Then Peter remembered the word the Lord had spoken to him: ‘Before the rooster crows today, you will disown me three times.’
And he went outside and wept bitterly.
Easy for us to be disappointed in, or even critical of Peter.
How many of us, in much less severe circumstances, have also effectively denied our faith in the Lord Jesus?
May we be bold in not shrinking back from acknowledging our Saviour and if we should fail, may we have the grace and courage to bounce back with greater commitment, as Peter did!
