    10-20-2016 Deny, Deny, Deny 

    Jesus said, “I tell you, Peter, the rooster shall not crow this day before you will deny three times that you know Me” (Luke 22:34 NKJV).  When he was pointed out, Peter did deny his association with Jesus.  The rooster crowed, Jesus looked at Peter, “So Peter went out and wept bitterly” (Luke 22:62 NKJV).  The truth was still true, though Peter denied, denied, and denied it.  It was when Peter “wept bitterly,” that he showed that he still had a conscience that knew right from wrong.  There are those, though, who speak “lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron” (1 Timothy 4:2 NKJV).  These have no tears of remorse, speak lies to your face (or investigative committee!), and have no feeling of conscience left.  No truth can point the way for someone who will deny, deny, deny, without repentance!

    A single key word: “deny” (Matthew 16:24).

    We must be willing to deny ourselves of temporary worldly treasures in order to attain those eternal treasures (Matthew 6:20; 1 Timothy 6:17-19; 1 Peter 1:3-4; cf. Hebrews 11:24-26).
