《Jesus Crucifixion Week spiritual meditation》: “Then seizing him, they led him away and took him into the house of the high priest. Peter followed at a distance.” (Luke 22:54)
Meditation one: After Jesus had his Last Supper with his disciples, the Lord went to the Mount of Olives and in the garden of Gethsemane, and His heart was in an agony. Although came to the garden with the Lord, Peter failed to be watchful with Him; and Peter felt into sleep, and let the Lord sorrow over alone. Do we behave like Peter? Falls into sleep while praying; follow the Lord but not all the way to the end.
Meditation two: When the Lord Jesus was brought into the courtyard of the High priest, Peter, fearing, only followed from afar, kept his distance in order to be safe. When the Lord was teased and humiliated, Peter publicly denied the Lord three times, allowing him to all over the scars. We criticize Peter for being ungrateful, but if it were us, would we be better than Peter?
Prayer: Abba Dear Father, thank You for the amazing grace. The Lord Jesus was crucified for our sins. How can such love be forgotten? Ask the holy light to shine on me, let me love You with all my heart; Let me follow You with all my mind, and let me serve You in whole . I pray in the victorious name of the Lord Jesus, Amen!
