Descipline in the life of Peter :
Peter thinks that he is strong and that he could defend Jesus Christ when someone would take him or attack him, and his way, as we remember, dba isang tao, pinutol nya ang tenga thru the use of the sword: Then Jesus Christ put this back and said, those who live by the swrod, die in the sword.
In Chapter 26 of Matthew, verse 31 : Jesus Said, that people will go in different directions, for it is written
““ ‘I will strike the shepherd,
and the sheep of the flock will be scattered.’
33Peter replied, “Even if all fall away on account of you, I never will.”
34 “Truly I tell you,”Jesus answered, “this very night, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times.”
35But Peter declared, “Even if I have to die with you, I will never disown you.” And all the other disciples said the same.
Ganun ka stron ang conviction ni Peter, ganun ka strong ang paniniwala nya, ganun din tayo ka big head. Sometimes we are full of ourselves that we can do things as we say… But then, God replied this very night, before the roster crows, you will dis own me three times.
What happened to Peter after this? He wept, he realise how weak he is. Another thing of this, is Peter is wrapped with anger, the anger he has to Paul as the one who prosecuted the Christians.
Why Jesus or God let Satan Peter to fall away? Or stumble? Simply because, Peter, before he become worthy for kingdom of God he must realise that he is weak. Peter, buddy, you are weak by yourself, you are nothing, you are human and human strength could not win victory against deceptive ways of Satan. And before God can use Peter, to be his Rock, first Peter need to humble himself and put God above him, that it is not him, it not his strength but of God,
In the life of Jacob, God allowed Jacob to meet his uncle Laban, who will discipline him in a way that Jacob will fall to his knee. He walked into a road dealing his house full of cats and dogs fighting each other towards his affection. And we know in this story that Jacob will be the father of the 12 tribes. Such a title of leadership that is very important in the society imagine, twelve tribes manggagaling sayo, and this people should walk with God, and that is his purpose, however, before Jacob worthy of Gods and his generations for Gods grace, blessings, and provision, guidance and presence of God, they should be worthy, and worthiness is not something a person can do, but a realisation that there is nothing we can do without God, and ours alone, we are nothing,but in him we have everything.”
In the life of David, how did David stumble? Dba yung nakita nya yung babae naligo nga si Sheba or Basheba bay un ang pangalan, napaganda, but this woman is married to one of his loyal army. Anong ginawa nya? He asked one of his general to put this person in front of war, so that when the war happened, he is the person first to die… so he will be free and get his wife,
I pray that we have anything that we have anything to share,
I submit myself to discipline, how we submit our self to discipline?
In the life of Joakim, God let Babylon to conquer Israel, and made them slaves, but then, the Babylon
