Stephen Turner speaks on John 18:1-27, where the disciple Peter denies his Lord three times the night Jesus was betrayed. When we considers this shocking betrayal with the fact that Peter was the unspoken leader of the 12 disciples closest to Jesus, we are left wondering how he fell to such lows. 

Pastor Steve highlights that Peter was ashamed of Christ that night because of one core reason: he did not know his Lord well enough, as he should have known him. This challenge is the same for every Christ follower - do we know Jesus Christ well? Are we growing in this intimate relationship with our Lord? The bible clearly teaches that believers will be challenged and opposed by the unbelieving world which rejects God. How will we be able to stand for Jesus unashamedly unless we have a rock solid knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ in all his goodness and glory?
