John 13:31-38

The Word of God

When he had gone out, Jesus said, ‘Now the Son of Man has been glorified, and God has been glorified in him. If God has been glorified in him, God will also glorify him in himself and will glorify him at once. Little children, I am with you only a little longer. You will look for me; and as I said to the Jews so now I say to you, “Where I am going, you cannot come.” I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.’ Simon Peter said to him, ‘Lord, where are you going?’ Jesus answered, ‘Where I am going, you cannot follow me now; but you will follow afterwards.’ Peter said to him, ‘Lord, why can I not follow you now? I will lay down my life for you.’ Jesus answered, ‘Will you lay down your life for me? Very truly, I tell you, before the cock crows, you will have denied me three times.

    • God is glorified in all sorts of ways. He is glorified in the passion of Jesus, as all that is done is done from love. Even in sending out Judas there is the beginning of the journey of passion - love which will result in the love of the Cross.

    • Lord, may I never be so wrapped up in my own plans that I miss your appeals and invitations.
    • Enthusiasm did not allow Peter to be calculating or measured. I pray for the same willingness to follow Jesus even as I know that I need also the courage and resolve that would fail Peter in the difficult hour.
    • Peter's denials were matched by his professions of faith. I prepare myself to walk with Jesus on his way of the cross by recalling how I have been strong and by asking for forgiveness for my weakness.
    • I ask God for a greater desire to go where Jesus has gone, to live as he lived, to love as he loved. I realise the cost, but I know that it is only in giving glory to God that I can become the person God made me to be.
    • I imagine God looking on the world, with all its multitude of people who love and serve each other in so many different ways. I imagine all the Christian communities that gather to worship today and pray that they may be seen to be disciples of Jesus by the love they show.
