Scripture & A Snapshot {Week 8}


John 18:27


For those not familiar with this passage, Peter (one of the 12 disciples) had just denied knowing Jesus for the third time. Hours prior to this, Jesus Himself had told Peter this would happen. Peter emphatically replied that he would die with Jesus before ever doing such a thing. And yet, Peter did just as Christ had said. 

I am embarrassed to admit the number of times I've been like Peter and denied Jesus. When I've known what He wants me to do, and yet I do what I want to do. And, just like Peter, I am thankful for the grace, forgiveness and patience that Christ shows me, time and time again. Even when I've denied Him. When I've broken His heart and treated Him with disrespect. Even then, He still loves me. 


For the full story of Peter's denial, read John 13:31-38 and John 18

  6. Katie, such a convicting analogy ~ I think of those times when I should have shared and didn't. I too am so much like "ole Peter", just speak my mind before thinking. Thank you for allowing the Lord to work through you by hosting Scripture and A Snaphot.

  8. Hello Kate,
    I'm glad to participate again this week. This meme is really an encouragement.

    I've been trying to learn how to create that background effect you have but I never get close to yours. Also, I want to know what program you use for the text of the verse. I like the way you emphasize important words.

    thank you again for hosting us this week. May you have a great week ahead.
    Blessings!

  12. I'm afraid I've been there before - not necessarily denying that I know Jesus, but by not speaking, I am denying my faith. Thank you for giving me such an opportunity to share my faith.

  17. Awesome!!! You are so right. Peter may have actually denied Jesus, but we deny Him also in other ways. How sad, yet how wonderful to know we are forgiven. Oh to live for Jesus each and every day.

  18. Love your post, so very true, how we deny Jesus just with our actions. I'm a little late this week. Been busy getting 1200 newsletters out! Hopefully it's not too late!
