‘Judas, Peter, Satan …and Jesus’ (John 13:18-38)

Seated at the table around the Last Supper, the disciples heard Jesus speak plainly that one of them would betray him and one of them would deny him. Judas was the betrayer – a man who failed to check the love of money within his heart and who was open to the schemes of the evil one. Peter was the a man who thought that he was as strong as an ox, only to be found to be as weak as a kitten. One fell into great sin and knew only remorse. The other was restored and forgiven by grace. Both serve to remind us that we cannot trust our own hearts.
