Pride before a fall! (John 13:36-38)Rev Gareth James, July 5, 2020
Part of the The Upper Room series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
This morning Gareth continues where we left off in the Upper Room. This episode with Peter is a stark reminder that our self-confidence sometimes makes us think we can do more than we can.

36 Simon Peter said to him, “Lord, where are you going?” Jesus answered him, “Where I am going you cannot follow me now, but you will follow afterward.” 37 Peter said to him, “Lord, why can I not follow you now? I will lay down my life for you.” 38 Jesus answered, “Will you lay down your life for me? Truly, truly, I say to you, the rooster will not crow till you have denied me three times. (ESV)
