No, I am not

No, I am not

No, I am not one of his disciples

No, you didn’t see me in the garden

The denials of Peter

Peter who promised he would die for the Messiah draws warmth from the fire

He’s brave enough to see where they have taken Jesus

Yet, when they look him in the eyes and ask

you’re not one of his disciples, are you?”

His courage is gone

His commitment disappeared

Fear has replaced love

and all Peter can do is deny

Deny the one he claimed he would follow to the end

Deny the Son of God, the Messiah, the Christ

Deny, deny, deny

All to save himself

All to leave Jesus so very, very alone
