NO EXCUSES. . . . . Mark 14:71 It is easy to get angry at the Jewish Sanhedrin for their injustice in condemning Jesus, but Peter and the rest of the disciples also contributed to Jesus’ pain by deserting him (Mark 14:50). While most of us are not like the Jewish leaders, we are all like the disciples, for all of us have been guilty of denying Christ as Lord in vital areas of our life. We may pride ourself that we have not committed certain sins, but we are all guilty of sin. Don’t excuse yourself by pointing the finger at others whose sins seem worse than yours.
