Mark 14:72 - Finally Broken
"......and (Peter) began to weep." FINALLY! He was finally broken from all his self-sufficiency and self-confidence - the very things that had to be broken before he could in fact be the Rock that Jesus said he would be. Peter never knew the evil he was capable of doing, hence the reason he had to go through denying his best friend, the very thing he promised he would never do. It started long before this when his self-confidence had to be rebuked by Jesus, then he didn't keep watch in the garden (he kept falling asleep), then he followed Jesus at a distance, then his desire for comfort brought him to the point where he was in company with the wrong people around a fire - all of this led up to his denial and got him to the point where he was finally broken!
