Follow the Leader

Do you remember playing the children’s game, Follow the Leader? The leader might walk around the house, through the bushes and up the hill. The other children would follow and do exactly what the leader did.
Jesus is our leader in life. Our job is to follow Him. In our Bible verses, Jesus was talking with His disciples. Jesus said that He was going away. Peter was confused. He did not understand where Jesus was going. In verse 37 Peter asked, “Lord, why can’t I follow you now? I am ready to die for you!”
Peter was very brave. But Jesus went on to tell Peter that he would say that he did not know Him. Very soon after this, Peter denied Jesus three times. Peter was sad, but he didn’t give up following Jesus.
Sometimes we will fail, too. But we need to keep following Jesus. Keep your life focused on Him today!
