The Folly of Boasting in Our Own Hearts

Scene 1:

“But Peter declared, ‘Even if I have to die with you, I will never disown you.’  And all the other disciples said the same.” (Matt. 26:35)

Scene 2:

“Then he began to call down curses on himself and he swore to them, ‘I don’t know the man!’  Immediately a rooster crowed.  Then Peter remembered the word Jesus had spoken: ‘Before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times.’  And he went outside and wept bitterly.” (Matt. 26:74-75)

Application:

It is far better to pray for our hearts than to boast or trust in our hearts.

Our hearts do not deserve our confidence, Jesus does.

Our hearts will not keep us from falling away. Only Jesus will.
