Peter has followed Jesus, from Gethsemane to Caiaphas’ court room. As he stands there with a group of people, people from various walks in life, he is approached for a third time and here is what they say…
You really are one of them! Look… the way you talk makes it obvious! (Matthew 26:73)
The way you talk.
So what does Peter do? He changes the words he has been using and speaks words that no follower of Christ would use. “Then he began to curse and swear… I do not know the man.”( Matthew 26:74) He uses his words to show he is not a follower of Christ.
Because the way you talk makes a connection.
Does your speech make it obvious you are a follower of Christ?
