I saw many miracles during our travels and have myself case out demons in His name. I was bold when it came to the things of God. I appreciate his teaching and we hung on every one that came from His mouth. I had faith in His works.
But one day at dinner he told us, that He was going to leave them and one of us would betray Him. I thought to myself how could one of us betray Him. We all loved Him so much, we would be by His side to the end.
When the soilder came and arrested Him. I tried to defense Him but He was not having any of that. He healed the soilder right their in front of all of us.
I step back away from Him and all that was going on but one lady asked aren't with Him. Everyone looked at me but I shook my head. I didn't want to be associated with Him and they were planning on killing Him, too.
He was not a friend of mine, but I had been with Him on travels. People had seen me with Him and heard me preach the good news. People have seen me do the things that He did. Is how people think that you are someone friend?
In the end, you must know that He was a friend that was closer than a brother. He was a friend that would lay down His life for me. He was a teacher, who showed me that I could walk on water, if I just would just focus on Him and believe. My name is Peter which means Rock. But when it came to being a friend of Jesus, I deny Him three times. What kind of friend was I?
