June 30, 2014•8 min
Yesterday on The Morning Meditation we saw some New Things about God! I am glad that I have experienced some of these new things and I look forward to the day of experiencing the rest.
Today on The Morning Meditation:
THE STEPS OF PETER'S DOWNFALL
Mark 14:29-31 "But Peter said unto him, Although all shall be offended, yet will not I. And Jesus saith unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this day, even in this night, before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. But he spake the more vehemently, If I should die with thee, I will not deny thee in any wise. Likewise also said they all."
This meditation will be spread out over the rest of this chapter.
Backsliding is a process. Eve first saw, then desired, then took, then ate before she gave to Adam. Falling away out of the company and fellowship of Christ is the result of an inward disease preying upon the vitals of our spiritual being. That disease is self will. Let's follow Peter in his downward march step by step.
