Lesson 132: How Can a Disciple Sin? (Luke 22:54-62)

None of the apostles come across as a greater picture of contrasts than Peter. He was recklessly brave at one moment and completely avoidant the next. His words would be spot on only to be followed up with satanic speech. He would promise everything to Jesus only to deny him a few hours later. And that is where we find Peter in this passage. It’s abundantly clear from the Scriptures that he was a true follower of the Lord, and yet we see him repeatedly disassociating himself from the One who was about to give His life for him. How is it that he could still be counted a genuine disciple? Pastor Daniel explains how the life of a believer is not a perfect straight line, though it is likewise not aimless. He maintains, “A believer does not surrender in the war against sin because Christ does not let him or her. A believer continues to pursue Christ.”
