In this short sermon, we are going to look at the meaning of what the bible says in Luke 22:62: so Peter went out and wept bitterly.
But before we do so, let’s outline the scripture where we have this bible verse in its whole context.
And the Lord turned and looked at Peter. Then Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how He had said to him, “Before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times.” So Peter went out and wept bitterly.Luke 22:61-62.
Why Peter wept bitterly?
Peter wept bitterly when he discovered he had denied Jesus 3 consecutive times.
Now one thing we need to understand is that all those times Peter was denying the Lord he had completely forgotten about what he said to him that he will deny Him 3 times before the cock crows.
And the most notable part of this text is that it was that same time that the Lord turned and looked at Peter.
Now Peter’s action is the one we should all emulate as Christians.
Because there are times we will unintentionally fall into an occasion of sin; that is we forget what the bible says about something bad we just did.
Once we realize our sins we must go somewhere and weep bitterly.
Weeping bitterly entails being sorrowful of our sins.
Because that is what is going to help us go and seek forgiveness from God.
