Outline For Scripture Union Daily Guide 27 March 2024

Today’s reading calls for a great caution. Among the disciples, Peter, John, and James were closest to Jesus, with Peter almost like a confidant and spokesman. Despite this, Peter denied being a disciple of Jesus three times, when it was most important to identify with Him. Read vs.17, 25 and 27 again and think of possible reasons Peter was unwilling to identify with his Master at such a critical time? In what ways do we also deny Jesus today?

Jesus had prewarned Peter (13:38) but it seems he was overconfident that he can never deny Jesus. Depending on our own strength is dangerous but if we trust the Lord, He will always help us out of whatever situations we may find ourselves (cf. Daniel 3:16-18). However, if we fail and realise our errors, we must promptly turn to the Lord in repentance (see Luke 22:61-62).

In vs.19-21, the High Priest exhibited attitude of disrespect, craftiness, and callousness, very similar to what we see in our security and judicial systems today. These attitudes are against fair hearing and justice, and Christians should not be involved in such acts against the innocent.

• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?

Closing Prayer
O Lord help me not to think more than who I am.
Offer a prayer of faith in line with Psalms 27:9
“Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.”
