Discussion for Luke 22

    v. 61 - "And the Lord turned and looked upon Peter ........"; This first part makes me weep, literally. Can you imagine - 3 yrs. of walking, learning, loving Him and KNOWING in yourself that you would never betray or deny Him. But then - REALITY comes to visit. I can actually see Jesus turning to look upon Peter. It's a look of - love with calmness, resigned, but with such STRENGTH!!

    Verse 42
    Jesus came down to earth to seek and save us. That cup He had to drink could have been our salvation, peace, healing, deliverance, redemption, etc. What would have happened to us if He didn't surrender His will to God? Thank you Lord Jesus for being so willing to die that painful death for us. Lord you gave your life for me, please help me give mine to you willingly. I thank you Lord.
