LET'S CONSIDER WHAT LED TO PETER'S FAILURE

1. His Path

* Mark 15:54

o He followed from a distance

* Up enough to say I was there

* Back enough to say I wasn't there

o Like many today

„X Love Church

* No involvement

„X Love the blessing

* Not the battle

* Following from a distance will always cause you to deny Him

* The proof of desire is in the pursuit.

* I love you

o Mark the box

2. His Pride

* He said I will never fail

* I will never leave you

* I don't need your grace

* Pride makes you self-sufficient

* Pride keeps you from accepting grace

3. His Presumption

* At a campfire he failed

* At a campfire he was restored

EXPLAIN

* He presumed he was

„X Unwanted

„X Unloved

„X Not valuable

o I failed

o Killed

o Lied

ƒ{ Judas & Peter

ƒ{ 2 roads

* Grace broke the curse

„X Reverse the curse
