Betrayed and Left Alone
During Supper, when the disciples were sharing the bread Jesus broke a piece of bread to and gave it to Judas to eat and then satan entered in to him. Jesus told Judas to go and do what you have to. Jesus knew what was coming, He was going to be betrayed into the hands of his enemies, the religious leaders who hated Him because Jesus called them out on their hard hearts and love of the things of this world instead of God.
Isn’t it strange how we can relate something like this in our lives? We assume someone is a nice person, you have treated them fairly, you may even love them and then you find out they have walked away from you, spoken about you negatively and all the while you felt like you were doing the right thing. But people are naturally sinful and have a sinful nature and just as Jesus was knowingly betrayed by his enemies, he was also betrayed by the leader of the disciples, Peter, who He trusted so much and God revealed it to Jesus this way; Simon Peter asked him, “Lord, where are you going?”Jesus replied, “Where I am going, you cannot follow now, but you will follow later.”Peter asked, “Lord, why can’t I follow you now? I will lay down my life for you.” Then Jesus answered, “Will you really lay down your life for me? Very truly I tell you, before the rooster crows, you will disown me three times! John 13:36-38
Through this Jesus continues to pray for them even though He is facing death on a cross, betrayal and being left alone. But His Heavenly Father was with Him all the way to the cross and for this very reason, Jesus Blood on that cross has covered our sin debt. So this very day (Good Friday) is a day to repent your sins to Jesus and ask for a relationship with Him because He saved your life over 2000 years ago and He has never left you even if you feel as though he has. If you don’t know what this really means ask Jesus to come into your heart and show you because you are never alone when you have the One and only Son, the Savior of your life that came in for you and paid your debt.
