Week 37   Day 6

 

Jesus is our savior but what does salvation from sin mean

     for

            Judas

            the scribes and Pharisees

            those in authority 

            those who carried out the orders 

            Peter 

            you and me 

 

 

To be saved from sin is to trade

            my sin

            for Jesus' righteousness 

    

            my pain

            for his joy

 

            a hard heart

            for an open and receptive heart

 

 

Do you ever wish you could start over

     and have a clean fresh slate

God has promised that

     when we repent

     and receive his forgiveness 

            we are given a new slate that is wiped clean 

            we can begin again facing forward

By faith we receive this salvation and have victory over sin

 

 

God gives

            his love and grace 

            his only Son

and as we believe

            and receive
we are saved.

 

 

 

             THE TRIAL IN THE HIGH PRIEST'S HOUSE

            They all voted against Jesus, including Peter.

                                               Mark 14

 

    45His betrayer came, and said to Him, "Rabbi, Rabbi!" and

kissed Him.  46Then they laid hands on Him and took Him. 

47One of those who stood by drew his sword and struck the

servant of the high priest.  48Then Jesus said, "Have you come

out, as against a robber, with swords and clubs?  49 I was daily

with you in the temple, and you did not seize Me."

    53They led Jesus away to the high priest; and with Him all
the
chief priests, elders, and scribes.  54Peter followed at a
distance,
right into the courtyard of the high priest.  And he
sat with the
servants and warmed himself at the fire.

    55The chief priests and council sought testimony against

Jesus to put Him to death, but found none.  56Many bore
false witness against Him, but their testimonies did not
agree. 
57Some rose up, saying, 58"We heard Him say,
'I will
destroy this temple, and within three days I will build
another.'"
59But not even then did their testimony agree.

    60The high priest stood and asked Jesus, "Do You answer

nothing?  What is it these men testify against You?"   61But

He kept silent.  Again the high priest asked Him, saying, "Are

You the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?"

    62Jesus said, "I am.  You will see the Son of Man sitting
at the right hand of the Power, and coming with the clouds."

63Then the high priest said, "What further need do we have

of witnesses?  64You have heard the blasphemy!  What do you

think?"  And they all condemned Him to be deserving of death.

65Some began to spit on Him, to blindfold Him, and beat Him,

and say, "Prophesy!"  The officers struck Him with their hands.

    66As Peter was below in the courtyard, one of the servant girls

of the high priest  67saw Peter warming himself.  She looked at

him and said, "You also were with Jesus of Nazareth."  68But

he denied it, saying, "I neither know nor understand what you

are saying."  He went out on the porch, and a rooster crowed.

    69The servant girl saw him again, and said to those who
stood
by, "This is one of them."  But he denied it again.  A little
later
they said to Peter, "Surely you are one of them; for you are

a Galilean, and your speech shows it."

    71He began to curse and swear, "I do not know this Man!" 

72A second time the rooster crowed.  Then Peter called to mind

that Jesus had said to him, "Before the rooster crows twice, you

will deny Me three time."  When he thought about it, he wept.
