But poor Peter wished things another direction.
Jesus wasted not a single breath,
To reprove and then offer loving correction.
For what is life without the soul,
Or faith without good works?
Deny yourself, complete your role.
Do not avoid what hurts.
Pick up your cross.
Serve and follow Him.
Heed the words of Christ.
See that you do them.
John 16:8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 16:9 Of sin, because they believe not on me; 16:10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; 16:11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
