Stay Awake.

We already know about Judas – what He was planning to do. Of the other eleven disciples, Peter wasn’t the only one who failed the Lord – “All the other disciples said the same thing as Peter” (Mark 14:31), and, like Peter, they let the Lord down. They kept well out of the way, making sure that they were not associated with Jesus. We see the same kind of thing in the Garden of Gethsemane. Jesus spoke to Peter, “Simon, are you sleeping? … ” (Mark 14:37-38), but it wasn’t only Peter who was sleeping (Mark 13:37). Even after Jesus had said to them, “Stay awake … “, they fell “asleep” (Mark 14:40). To each of us, Jesus says, “Stay awake, and pray that you won’t be tempted” (Mark 14:38).
