    v. 1 - ".....and a witness of the sufferings of Christ ....."; this reminds me of Lk. 22:61 - and the Lord turned and looked upon Peter. Oh, the sorrow, guilt, and silent recrimination Peter must have felt!! That one phrase brings tears to my eyes. Because, the Lord didn't condemn him, not even silently. His look was of pure love, because He knew beforehand Peter would do this, and He knew why.

    I love this chapter...But of course I always wonder if Christians ever recognize the work of satan..Like this election for example....I know Christians voting for presidential candidates that are anti Bible and all it stands for..They are voting to allow satan to have control of our leaders and eventually our freedoms..Shame on them.

    This was edifying to my soul because I have been there and the devil was trying to keep me under his spell but I prayed and now I am free from that enemy. I don't give Satan the chance to re-enter into my spirit.
