Sermons about Denial
Following Jesus is costly but it is worth it.
For us he died, and on the third day he rose and got up with all power.
Like Peter, we are capable of denying Christ anytime we let fear stop us from being faithful to the life He calls us to. We need to give up fear in order to be committed followers of Jesus.
Denying Jesus is a real possibility for His followers, whether in the heat of the moment or by our silence. If even Peter would deny Jesus three times, how can we honestly think it could never happen to us? So, is there any way to prevent us from denying Jesus? Biblically, the best defense against denying Jesus is knowing Him. We must know the life-transforming power of the gospel. We must know Jesus; not just intellectually, but personally and experientially as we walk with Him. So, take a stand for Jesus. Get to know Him better. Stop being silent. When the heat is on, be unashamed. Never underestimate the need for prayer.
