Jordan looks at the story of Jesus before the Sanhedrin and Peter's denial and asks the questions: How do we respond when our identity is challenged? With courage or cowardice? It takes great courage to believe something when everything else in your life tells you otherwise. We all have our breaking points, and how we respond to our inevitable moments of cowering in the corner is key. Will you believe the identity that the Lord is speaking over you? And when you don't, will you be courageous again and jump into the arms of Christ?
