I.  Still in the Courtyard

A.  The leaders got it wrong.

B.  Peter gets it wrong.

C.  Being close isn’t good enough.

II.  Jesus Knew What Peter Didn’t

A.  Remember 14:27 — You WILL fall away.

B.  There is fear in being close to Jesus.

C.  Confusion and snap reactions are real.

III.  Dangers to Be Aware Of

A.  Danger #1: Failing to act out of humility (pride).

B.  Danger #2: Failing to act from spiritual resources.

C.  Danger #3: Failing to see Peter in ourselves.  We must repent quickly too!

Jesus’ prediction and Peter’s failure should jolt us into action.
