Luke 22: 54-62 “Having arrested Him, they led Him and brought Him into the high priest’s house. But Peter followed at a distance. Now when they had kindled a fire in the midst of the courtyard and sat down together, Peter sat among them. And a certain servant girl, seeing him as he sat by the fire, looked intently at him and said, “This man was also with Him.”
But he denied Him, saying, “Woman, I do not know Him.”
And after a little while another saw him and said, “You also are of them.”
But Peter said, “Man, I am not!”
Then after about an hour had passed, another confidently affirmed, saying, “Surely this fellow also was with Him, for he is a Galilean.”
But Peter said, “Man, I do not know what you are saying!”
Immediately, while he was still speaking, the rooster crowed. And the Lord turned and looked at Peter. Then Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how He had said to him, “Before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times.” So Peter went out and wept bitterly”
Imagine how Peter must have felt. He ate the Lord’s Supper with Jesus, he even told His master “Even if I have to die with You, I will not deny You!” Yet when Jesus was arrested, He turned and looked at Peter. He knew what Peter did. Peter also knew what he did and wept bitterly.
When we partake of the Lord’s Supper we remember that day. We remember His willing sacrifice until he comes again.
So when we partake, what if Jesus turned and looked at us? How would we feel? If we take it improperly, how could we explain ourselves to our Savior?
Remember this every time we partake so we can do so in a well pleasing manner.
