YES WE DO
“Now Peter sat without in the palace:
and a damsel came unto him, saying, Thou also wast with Jesus of Galilee.
But he denied before them all, saying, I know not what thou sayest. And
when he was gone out into the porch, another maid saw him, and said unto
them that were there, This fellow was also with Jesus of Nazareth. And
again he denied with an oath, I do not know the man.”
There was a time in my life when I was ashamed to carry the Bible. I
would hide it in my purse for fear of being ridiculed. I was denying
Jesus. Are you denying Jesus by your actions and words?
I think that we hurt the Heart of Jesus when we have a conversation with
someone and never mention His Name. We brag about our children and
family, but do we brag about Jesus? We go out to eat with friends
and family, but do we ever talk about how much Jesus means to us and how
He has provided for us and protected us? May God forgive us for
When we won’t even mention the name of Jesus, we are just as guilty as
Peter was when he said, “I do not know the man.” Every day of our
lives, every one of us deny Jesus in some way, either by our words or
I challenge all of us to start bragging on Jesus and showing His Picture.
When others look at you, do they see the Eyes and Smiles of Jesus, or do
they see satan in your attitude?
