And immediately the rooster crowed the second time. Suddenly, Jesus’ words flashed through Peter’s mind: “Before the rooster crows twice, you will deny three times that you even know me.” And he broke down and wept. (Mark 14:72 NLT)
I was reading this passage when I instantly saw this image in my mind. I have denied Jesus. Not in word or saying I don't know Him, but not always living as I should. Living like Him. Loving like Him - sacrificially. Instead j have been Peter acting in self preservation. I am so thankful for a Savior who forgives and loves, even as we wound Him.
