“38 Jesus (YH’shua: YH is salvation) answered him, “Will you lay down your life for My sake? Most assuredly, I say to you, the rooster shall not crow till you have denied Me three times.”
That a beloved and tested disciple is now forced to face his worse fear, himself. A window into us all, and a contrast to how the Word and Works of Elohim sees further into us than we do ourselves.
The image of a loving Father that meets us there, correcting and never abandoning a humbled heart.
The outcome? A born again Peter that would now move forward in the true ministry of the Hebrew Messiah! An effort that he continued until his very last breath, as so too YH’shua’s ministry proved: A humbled Peter that came to understand what Messiah had meant, that of giving his life so others could find salvation, and a mindset that is missing in most modern day Christianity; that of the “me” mentality.
So Peter got it, making the rest of his life about walking and not just talking Messiah’s ministry, that others could live. Will we?
Just one of many Biblical examples of haughty servants being humbled, something that in today’s world is defined as a weekly session of song, dance and halleluYH, a self gratifying thing; sadly? sheep being separated from the goats. Please, don’t be a goat!!!!
In Messiah’s word? ” he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do….” (John 14:12).
That we may stay humbled to salvation’s end – not our end: May blessings be so in YH’shua’s example!
