The story was captured with Judas turning to the priests, there was agreed in exchange for thirty pieces of silver, betray Jesus, meanwhile, arrived the disciples prepared the Passover supper.
On Easter Day, Jesus announces two important events:
■ Someone should deliver
■ would be denied
Each of the disciples asked about the possibility of their participation in the events outlined While Judas, the traitor above asked: "Am I ...?, And the response could not be more blunt: You said it!.
But the central issue of this episode is what made the disciples thought they could come to fail the Lord Jesus to the delivery point?. For a moment, they stop to look inside and realize that they are imperfect, they are full of flaws and that may eventually betray his master.
At the time that Jesus says that someone would release for slaughter, sadness gripped the disciples, but a sadness that was due to a simple state of melancholy, but one in which it is recognized that human activities, always tending to worse, lead Jesus to the cross.
At the end of the attitude of the followers of the Master (Jesus) turned, never hand him over, even declared absolutely loyal. So far it is to rescue the concept that the Apostle Paul presented in his dissertation to the Corinthians (2 Corinthians 7: 8-12), the grieving and saddened by the sin, if I know my faults are not little, then I am confident I''m going to the cross in repentance and the accept my mistakes and ask forgiveness of Jesus Christ, will return the joy and peace of God.
The disciples experienced that grieved by the Holy Spirit, no one was exempt from being a traitor or deny the Lord (Jesus) and we are not free of mistakes.
It is then to be sad about my failures and mistakes as a conviction of the Holy Spirit, we immediately move to repentance and that it leads to salvation.
It is disastrous accustomed to sin, pretending to be "good" by the standards themselves, but light years away from God, do not think we could with our brood or act to do something that offends our God.
Without radical and true repentance there is no forgiveness without him is the pride that rules, removing the indispensable man of the reconciliation with his Creator.
Pride is a deadly weapon which is opposed to repentance and appears before the fall or resounding defeat, the heart hardens, there is no conviction of sin and then begins to suffer from a moral relativism that is capable of accepting all kinds of vileness.
The disciples were hard, very probably the same Peter saw sin in others, but not the weakness itself. Rely on their natural ability, "I never disown you" and left to review his life. Pride led to excessive confidence, did not depend on God, the disciples failed to fully listen to the warnings of Jesus "Watch and pray that ye enter not into temptation," such excesses as those make the man becomes deaf to the conviction of the Holy Spirit.
In Gethsemane Jesus prayed and the disciples slept, Peter, James and John did not understand what was going to happen, it was revealed because they prayed, they were not prepared and the evidence took them by surprise, came the spiritual lethargy, lacking conviction, accept we need from God to not falter.
They were alert and were tempted, one denied, the rest fled, so once the temptation grows stronger spiritual is completely marginalized.
However there is still hope, God expects us to listen to Him (Matthew 26) Jesus looked at Peter after denying and he wept bitterly, was convinced of Sin, he remembered the words of his master "will deny me three times," he overcome by sadness and the feeling after the resurrection, he could also say sorry three times his love for the Lord Jesus, experienced the love of God and began a powerful ministry.
"We need conviction of sin, confess and be agile to take our great need of God" (James 4:7)
