This is M(?) Pearson(?) I'm reading To the Last man by Jeff Shaw(?) in chapter 10 they talked about Las Perig(?) the American pilot this chapter talks about the bombing raid that's went disastrously(?) and how the men are dealing with it afterwards and the men kinda going through a rot where they feel like they could be easily defeated and so they don't perform as well but eventually the confidence gradually builds up again. Las Perig(?) another confirmed killed later on in chapter and is actually promoted to having the title of a flying(?) this causes men to throw a party for his country men but despite all this ___ smart but then happy about it. I don't think he was upset about his achievement or that he's having a party down but he's upset about the work so he fears that the war will have no end and this thought
Pastor: Matthew 26:58a: “Peter was following [Jesus] at a distance.” One of the great problems we face in life is fear. We have fought wars so that we can live in our country with¬out fear. We maintain a strong defense posture to make our enemies fear us so that we need not fear them. We have devised nuclear weapons to defend us, but now we face simple explosives strapped to a suicide bomber. Assisting Minister 2: No matter how we try to be safe and secure, there’s always something to fear. Assisting Minister 1: We are fearful also in our lives as Christians. Pastor: Tonight we can say, All three: It’s Jesus, Peter, and me; and it’s all about fearful, and thus distant, discipleship. [THEME HYMN] Pastor: We’re going to look at our fears, which make us distant disciples. But more than that, we’re going to look at Jesus. All three: See Jesus, who saves us from fear to follow Him in loyal discipleship. I. Pastor: Jesus’ disciples were, for a time, fearless in their dis¬cipleship. They were inspired by the success of His preaching, His popularity, and His demonstrations of power and authority. Assisting Minister 1: How quickly all this changes during that last visit to Gethsemane! Pastor: We see Jesus taken, bound, and led away as a common criminal. Confidence and optimism change to fear. Assisting Minister 2: Tonight we see Peter, the fearful follower, the disciple who follows Jesus from afar. Pastor: The enemies of Jesus had long planned to do away with Him. And now, at last, their opportunity had come. Assisting Minister 1: Then those who had seized Jesus led Him to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and elders had gathered. Pastor: Jesus must face them alone. But as we see Him led away, we find He is not entirely alone. Assisting Minister 2: Peter was following Him at a distance, as far as the courtyard of the high priest, and going inside he sat with the guards to see the end. Pastor: Peter kept his distance, a far-off disciple. II. Pastor: Sometimes we, too, are distant, far-off disciples. What is that distance like? Often, it’s being a half-hearted disci¬ple. It’s following Jesus only when it is convenient, when it requires no sacrifice. In other parts of the world, loyalty to Christ has cost Christians their lives. What are we willing to do or not do for the sake of Christ in our comfortable country? Assisting Minister 1: It’s evening, and you’re tired. There’s a meeting you should attend at church or in the community. What do you do? Assisting Minister 2: Here’s what’s right, and you ought to stand up for it. But it will cost you the good will of others. What do you do? Assisting Minister 1: Here’s a chance for profit, but it isn’t quite honest. What do you do? Pastor: These questions have to do with discipleship. What’s that distance from Jesus like? Sum it up this way: It’s going by our own will and desires in life’s deci¬sions, or in life’s day-to-day affairs. It’s what I want to do, not what my Lord wants me to do. We earn Jesus’ rebuke. Assisting Minister 1: Why do you call Me “Lord, Lord,” and not do what I tell you? Assisting Minister 2: Fear kept Peter at a distance in his discipleship. Assisting Minister 1: Fear is at the heart of our faulty discipleship. Pastor: We don’t always have the courage of our convictions. Assisting Minister 2: We are afraid to live our faith because we are afraid of the consequences. Assisting Minister 1: We are afraid we might be ridiculed, we might lose our pop¬ularity, we might be considered odd or different. Pastor: We may not get ahead in life as fast if we put what’s right, what’s honest, what’s unselfish above everything else. All this is a sign of spiritual distance from God. We are afraid, and so we follow from a distance. The distant disciple may soon not be a disciple at all. III. Pastor: What to do? When you are afraid of what it means to be a follower of Christ, then think on Christ. In His suffer¬ing and death you find the answer to the fear of being too close to Jesus. His life, death, and resurrection count for you. He bore your sins in His body on the cross. He lives again, having disarmed the powers that frighten you and keep you from faithfully following Him. God’s “fear not,” echoes throughout Scripture to reassure you. Assisting Minister 1: Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are Mine. Assisting Minister 2: Fear has to bow before our Lord’s “fear not.” Jesus draws us close to the heart of God as His redeemed, restored, forgiven people. The fear of being a disciple has to let go. Pastor: So the call comes from Jesus, “Follow Me.” His path leads to His cross and His vacated tomb, where your sins of distant discipleship have been put away forever. Assisting Minister 1: His path leads to the death of your sinful self, because He is alive in

Pastor: John 18:11: [Jesus said,] “Put your sword into its sheath; shall I not drink the cup that the Father has given Me?” Misunderstanding is dangerous. You can fail an examination in school, lose a friend, or generate hard feelings in your family because of a misunderstanding. The great¬est danger of all is that misunderstanding can destroy you spiritually. Assisting Minister 1: Doubt and misunderstanding go back to the beginning. Satan planted doubt in the mind of Eve by questioning her understanding. Assisting Minister 2: Did God actually say, “You shall not eat of any tree of the garden?” Are you sure you understood Him correctly? Pastor: We are aware of the tragic results. Ever since, Satan has used doubt and misunder¬standing to destroy people. Tonight we confess, All three: It’s Jesus, Peter, and me; and it’s all about misunderstanding— Pastor: for Peter, for the other disci¬ples, and for us. Assisting Minister 1: But we will go beyond misunderstanding to the true meaning of our Lord’s mission. All three: Jesus Himself defined His mission in these words: “the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” [THEME HYMN] I. Pastor: The mission is under way. We find Jesus and His dis¬ciples in Gethsemane. Look, a crowd led by Judas approaches, armed with a varied assortment of weapons. There is an exchange of words: Jesus strides forward and asks, Assisting Minister 1: Whom do you seek? Assisting Minister 2: Jesus of Nazareth. Assisting Minister 1: I am He. Pastor: They draw back and fall to the ground. They are not struck down by mere words. Armed men are struck down before an unarmed man by divine power. Jesus’ surrender is willing. Of His own free will, He goes forth to lay down His life for the world. Assisting Minister 2: But now Peter’s confidence begins to crack. Imag-ine what is going through his mind. What has happened seems incredible to him. Assisting Minister 1: Everything they had hoped for—an earthly kingdom, places of honor and power in that kingdom—it’s all collapsing. The master is taken captive. Assisting Minister 2: But Peter still musters courage. He feels he must rise to the situation. Impulsively, he strikes out with a sword, cut¬ting off the ear of the high priest’s servant. Pastor: Peter still misunderstood Jesus’ mission on earth. Had he recalled how Jesus had told His disciples His kingdom was not of this world, how He had told them He must suf¬fer and die, Peter would have seen that the course of events were now fitting neatly into the prophetic pattern. Assisting Minister 1: He would have seen that Jesus must be taken, tried, condemned, and crucified. II. Pastor: What form does misunderstanding Jesus take today? We misunderstand Him, for example, if we look to Him only as a source of material blessings for this life. Assisting Minister 1: That’s wanting God on our side, as a kind of Santa Claus, to fill life with all good things. Assisting Minister 2: So we are sorry that our sins may deprive us of some earthly blessings. Pastor: But we are not always sorry that our sins grieve God or hurt other people. Assisting Minister 2: We repent for fear that God will take away the things of this world. Pastor: But we are slow to repent for fear that sin will separate us from God. We misunderstand Jesus if we look to Him only for the hour of death and for eternity. Assisting Minister 1: That’s thinking of Him as a kind of insurance policy whose value kicks in only at death. Assisting Minister 2: We’re not always interested in Christ and His will for our life today and tomorrow. Pastor: We want a Savior, but not a Lord. We want forgiveness of sin, but are slow to seek strength to overcome sin now, in Christ-like living. We misunderstand Jesus if we see Him and the Church only as a status symbol. Assisting Minister 1: Then faith descends to calling ourselves Christian in name only. Assisting Minister 2: We want to say we are members of a church. We want a place to be married and a place to be buried, and not much more. Pastor: None of this will do. Jesus wants to be Savior and Lord of every moment of every day of every year of our life and into all eternity. Assisting Minister 2: Why? Assisting Minister 1: Because anything less than this is death. Pastor: He wants to forgive us now, to help us live a new life now, to learn to love as He loves, and to serve as He serves. Assisting Minister 2: Why? Assisting Minister 1: Because this is life instead of death. Pastor: If we don’t look to Him for all of this, we misunderstand Him. This satanic deception stands between us and Christ, and we are in danger of being lost, now and forever. III. Pastor: But Jesus does not give up on the lost. Remember? Jesus’ mission was to seek and save the lost. Jesus under¬stood His mission. Follow the action of our text. Jesus did not let anything, not even Peter’s sword, prevent Him from going to the cross: Assisting Minister 1: Put your sword into its sheath; shall I not drink the cup...
