The Way of Witness

Text: Mark 14:53-72
Rev. John Downs

We as humans tend to love the idea of justice being done.  Unfortunately, just as with Peter in today’s text, our tongues and hearts reveal our sin and would condemn us as great sinners justly deserving the wrath of God.  Praise be to God that, while our sin reveals our own unfaithfulness, Jesus demonstrates the greatness of his perfect faithfulness to his father’s purposes, walking the path as Messiah to purchase our redemption.
