Peter Denies Jesus (Matthew 26:69-75)
Sunday with your kids
Lesson summary: Even the most confident man will not stand apart from Jesus.
In our bible story we learned:
1. Peter hid the truth.
2. Jesus has no witness.
3. Peter denied Jesus.
Where is the Gospel?
How does today's Bible story fit into God's greater plan of redemption?
So often we, like Peter, think we can follow Jesus in our own strength. The truth is, even though we think we would do better, we are just like Peter. It is only by the grace of God that we believe. Peter needed a Savior. Yet he was blind to the power of his sin. It wasn’t until the rooster crowed that Peter realized what he had done.
Jesus was hours away from the cross where he would die for Peter’s sin and for the sin of everyone who puts their hope in him. Like Peter, we need God to open our eyes to our sinful condition. What an amazing display of love, that Jesus would go to the cross willingly even while those closest to him disowned him. What an amazing Savior who died for us!.
