Lent Week 5 - Thursday of Holy Week



Thursday of Holy Week

“DENIAL” 


Definition:

Refusal to admit the truth of a statement. OR The intentional disassociation from a relationship with a particular person.

(In this case Peter’s association with Jesus.)


Luke 22:54 – 62

54 Then seizing him, they led him away and took him into the house of the high priest. Peter followed at a distance. 55 But when they had kindled a fire in the middle of the courtyard and had sit down together, Peter sat down with them. 56 A servant girl saw him seated there in the firelight. She looked closely at him and said, “This man was with him.” 57 But he denied it. “Woman, I don’t know him,” he said. (The first denial) 58 A little later someone else saw him and said, “You are one of them.” 59 “Man, I am not! “ Peter replied. (2nd denial) About an hour later another asserted, “Certainly this fellow was with him, for he is a Galilean. 60 Peter replied, “Man, I don’t know what you’re talking about!” (3rd denial) Just as he was speaking, the rooster crowed. 61 The Lord turned and looked straight at Peter. Then Peter remembered the word the Lord had spoken to him: “Before the rooster crows today, you will disown me three times.” 62 And he went outside and wept bitterly.


1 John 1:8 says, 

“If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.”


However, 1 John 1:9 & 10 says: 

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar and his word has no place in our lives.”
