Read Mark 14:66-72.
This passage gives the actual account of Peter’s denial. Despite his best intentions, he did exactly what Jesus had said he would do.
When the reality of what he had done hit him, he wept bitterly. Weeping is a sign of true repentance. Peter’s response is so different from that of Judas.
Judas tried to undo what he had done and when he could not “fix it,” he hung himself. There is no indication of true repentance in Judas. True repentance always opens the door for restoration.
Where there is no repentance, there can be no restoration. Sometimes, what the LORD wants from us is not for us to “fix” our mistakes, but to come to Him in repentance.
Let the LORD show you any areas where you have failed and you just need to repent.
Peter Denies Jesus, and Weeps
“Now as Peter was below in the courtyard, one of the servant girls of the high priest came. And when she saw Peter warming himself, she looked at him and said, “You also were with Jesus of Nazareth.”
But he denied it, saying, “I neither know nor understand what you are saying.” And he went out on the porch, and a rooster crowed. And the servant girl saw him again, and began to say to those who stood by, “This is one of them.” But he denied it again. And a little later those who stood by said to Peter again, “Surely you are one of them; for you are a Galilean, and your speech shows it.”
Then he began to curse and swear, “I do not know this Man of whom you speak!”
A second time the rooster crowed. Then Peter called to mind the word that Jesus had said to him, “Before the rooster crows twice, you will deny Me three times.” And when he thought about it, he wept,” Mark 14:66-72.
