Daniel vs. Peter by Arun Jeyasingh

We know Daniel was very bold and stood for God, God saved him and God was with Him. God lifted him up and he was great in the whole province.

On the other hand, Peter was a person who was scared to stand up for God. He even betrayed God. The bible also says, "he was with Jesus". This gives a real picture that I can be walking with Jesus yet can put Him down.

But see the heart of my God, whether it's Daniel or Peter , He doesnt care.
His love is uncomprehensable.

Later, the same Peter became a mighty vessel, healed the sick in Jesus name.. also became so bold to give this statement, "Let it be known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by Him this man stands here before you whole"..

How did this happen??

verse 11 says "STONE which was rejected by you builders which has become the chief corenerstone."

Here is an expample of Peter's boldness. Verse 13 says, "Now when they saw the BOLDNESS of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized that they had BEEN WITH JESUS". Amen!!!!!!

For my Jesus, Daniel (a brave man) and Peter (a coward man) are the same. He can make anything out of a vessel which is willing to surrender. He can make me also IF ONLY I WEEP AND CRY FOR MY SINS like Peter did.

Peter was not BOLD because he was bold , its all God's grace .. isn our God awesome!!!! Halleuiah!!!

I am so thankful for having such a merciful and loving God. Thank you Father.

Hmmm, this is really amazing,i have never thought about that comparison. Peter in the end won souls for the Kingdom of God, Daniel interceded for the nation; and for both of them God was Glorified.
Wow, thanks again.
