Last night, Maundy Thursday, I preached on Jesus' arrest. I was struck by Peter's response to Jesus' arrest. He drew his sword and struck someone.
This is the same Peter, who would later that night deny Jesus 3 times - A bit of a contrast, I think.
It leads me to the following:
I suppose we would much rather die in our defense of Jesus than drink the cup he has called us to drink.
This has been the basis for my Easter-meditations.
Hope you find it helpful too.
