Followed From a Safe Distance

Followed From a Safe Distance

“The religious leaders seized Jesus and led him away, but Peter followed from a safe distance. They brought him to the home of the high priest, where people were already gathered out in the courtyard.”

‭‭Luke‬ ‭22:54‬ ‭TPT‬‬

Following the Savior from a safe distance has its attendant risks. 

Peter had been warned of pending temptations and the antidote should have been prayers and a strong fellowship 

However, he decided to play safe

What is it that is making you play safe with your Christian faith?

Christianity is meant to be on the offensive against the onslaught of the enemy.

The armor of God that Apostle Paul vividly illustrated is designed for the offensive and advancement of the kingdom 

Ephesians 6:11: “Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” …

Don’t allow any situation to cause you to be lukewarm and cut off your fellowship with the true believers 

”But we are certainly not those who are held back by fear and perish; we are among those who have faith and experience true life”  Hebrews 10:39  (TPT)

Don’t forsake the gathering of true believers 

Remain strong, consistent and advancing in your faith.
