Peter, who had a sword…struck the high priest’s servant, cutting off his right ear.
Shortly before the crucifixion, Peter is with Jesus in the garden. Hundreds of heavily armed soldiers were coming to arrest Christ and take Him to trial. They fully expected Jesus to be hidden in a cave, but He was not. When the soldiers arrived, Jesus of Nazareth stepped out and asked who they wanted. “When Jesus said, ‘I am he,’ [the soldiers] drew back and fell to the ground” (John 18:6). Imagine the disciples processing this event. The power of His Word collapsed an entire army! Peter saw the power displayed, and although he was misguided in his response, he believed that nothing was going to defeat him. He resolved to stand firm in the power of Jesus Christ!
Pray to stand firm in the power of Christ.
