Joh 13:21 After saying these things, Jesus was agitated in his spirit and testified, “I am honestly telling you, one from among you will hand me over.”
Joh 13:22 The disciples were looking into one another– perplexed about which one he was speaking about.
Joh 13:23 One of his disciples, the one Jesus loved, was reclining close beside Jesus.
Joh 13:24 Simon Peter signaled him to find out who it was he was talking about.
The Judas point
It is curious to note that neither of the disciples were perplexed about the actual fact of Jesus’ future betrayal. They were just concerned about who among them would do the deed. Could this be the response of their collective guilty consciences? The fact that they had to ask who it might be showed that each of them had considered (even if for a moment) what Judas had actually done.
Deep inside each one of us is a believer capable of jettisoning his faith, and a bride capable of betraying her loyalty. One of the reasons believers should encourage one another regularly is that we do not know which one among us is close to the Judas point.
Stay in fellowship with other believers, even if you have problems with some of your current church incidentals. You need the strength of reciprocal encouragement, and others need your help.
Lord, help us to encourage one another regularly.
