June 20 - John 18

(A re-run from last year, but a lot of you weren't around last year to read this - and I'm a bit busy in my vocations of fatherhood (spiritual and physical) today to come up with anything new.  God grant me to make the good confession to His children.)

Do not only see Peter's denial (which broke the 8th and 2nd Commandment), but see also how John holds that in close connection to Christ's giving the good confession, thus keeping both 8th and 2nd Commandments. This active obedience was credited to Peter as if he had done it, and to you as if you had done it too (Romans 4).
In a previous post, I mentioned Manute Bol, a former NBA player who suffered a terrible disease after serving his country with love.  May Christ use Manute's good confession (even in the face of great loss - see the story attached to the previous post) to comfort those who mourn his death, and to bring peace to Sudan.
