DENIAL

 

Matthew 10:33, "But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven." MATTHEW 10:32-33


To "deny" can mean a variety of things from as little as "to assert the contrary of" to "to disavow; disown." We can see that it must have been a lesser type of denial which Peter committed. because God certainly forgave Peter's sin and continued using him. In Hebrews 6:4-6, the Lord states that there is no repentance from total denial of the Lord (Heb. 10:29). Therefore, even though Peter denied (asserted he did not know) the Lord, he did not disown or disavow the Lord.

Believers don’t desire to deny our Lord, but failing to provide for spiritual health is the first step in that direction. Remembering this will help motivate us to seek the Lord as we know we should. It takes more than desire; it takes preparation. We have all been taught how to rely on ourselves, but we have to learn how to be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might (Eph. 6:10). Just as in the physical realm, muscles have to be exercised to become strong, so we have to exercise ourselves unto Godliness (1 Tim. 4:7).

Many people have been tormented by fear in thinking that they have denied the Lord because of some type of sin in their life. However, God looks on the heart (1 Sam. 16:7) and, regardless of how offensive our actions or words might be, if there is still a place in our hearts where we honor Him, He will not deny us ( 2 Tim. 2:12-13)

Leslie's note: I am totally God's Child and I serve him with my heart and hands because I love him!
