What we say…

On Thursday I finished reading through gospels (I’m reading through the Bible in 90 days) here is something that is worth noting from the life of Peter…

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)

Why?

Because the way you talk shows who you are following.

What does your speech show?
