You Must be Mistaken

“Didn’t I see you going into that church?” You stare at him and shake your head, “No!” But he doesn’t relent. “But I’m sure I saw you hanging out with those Christians the other day.” You stare at him with a stern face. “It wasn’t me!” He’s still not convinced. You can tell by his skeptical face. He gives you a mocking look. “Why would you associate with those hypocrites?” You frown at him, gripping the concealed Bible under your coat. “I told you, it wasn’t me! You’ve mistaken me for someone else!”

Now Peter was sitting outside in the courtyard, and a servant-girl came to him and said, “You too were with Jesus the Galilean.” But he denied it before them all, saying, “I do not know what you are talking about.” When he had gone out to the gateway, another servant-girl saw him and *said to those who were there, “This man was with Jesus of Nazareth.” And again he denied it with an oath, “I do not know the man.” A little later the bystanders came up and said to Peter, “Surely you too are one of them; for even the way you talk gives you away.” Then he began to curse and swear, “I do not know the man!” And immediately a rooster crowed. And Peter remembered the word which Jesus had said, “Before a rooster crows, you will deny Me three times.” And he went out and wept bitterly. – Matthew 26:69-75 (NASB)

  1. Our Sunday worship is a witness in itself. Let’s not fail to gather in God’s house. Streamed worship on TV, done in secret, is not the same.
