Denial

Mark 14:66-68
Peter Denies Jesus
While Peter was below in the courtyard, one of the servant-girls of the high priest came by. When she saw Peter warming himself, she stared at him and said, “You also were with Jesus, the man from Nazareth.” But he denied it, saying, “I do not know or understand what you are talking about.” And he went out into the forecourt. Then the cock crowed.

Jesus was under no illusions
He knew how fickle we can be
The lengths we will go
to save ourselves
consequences be damned.
He knew
and yet he continued
Continues
To hold out
Love
Forgiveness
Grace
No illusions
Just arms opened wide
to embrace.

Prayer
God, as we recognise our many failings, may we remember our beloved status. Known and loved by you.
