The greatest hindrance to the power of God in the life of a church or a believer is pride. Pride is original sin, and it is our sinful nature to be recognized. We want to be honored, and sometimes even glorified. But there is only one person who deserves it – Christ. Peter exemplified the sacred disposition of giving glory and honor to Christ.
I. Peter refused honor and glory because of his unholiness. (verse 12)
II. Peter refused honor and glory because of his helplessness. (verse 12)
