Peter was going to fight a 600 man kill squad alone for Jesus!! He drew his sword, cut off a mans ear but Jesus basically told his main supporter to put his sword away because I got this.....but Jesus was arrested, beaten, wrongfully accused, tried and crucified for no crime!!! Peter would have died fighting for Jesus that night. We are guilty of the same thing, it's killing us and our enemies are thriving!! We are tired, worn to a frazzle, stressed to the max!!! We will not let Jesus fight the battles for us.. Christianity would be awesome if it wasn't for all of us humans!!!!
"Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant's name was Malchus. Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?"
(John 18:10-11 KJV)
"And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the Lord's, and he will give you into our hands."(1 Samuel 17:47 KJV)
