2 Chronicles 34:1-33; Daniel 2:1-23; 1 John 4:1-21

The cock shall not crow, til thou hast denied me thrice. John 13:38
Ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer. Acts 3:14

Peter denied the Saviour as the Lord said he would. Not once but three times. These verses in Acts are part of Peter’s sermon in which he accused his listeners of denying the Christ. While Peter was probably thinking of his own sin, he could preach this message because he had been forgiven and restored to God. When we preach of sin, righteousness and judgment we surely realize it applies to us, but how glorious to say that what He did for me, He can do for you. —Ken Gross

Sinners Jesus will receive, sound the word of grace to all,
Who the heavenly pathway leave, all who linger, all who fall. —Edmund Neumeister
