FLEE-ERS, DENIERS & BETRAYERS PDF Print

“Rise, let us be going; see, My betrayer is at hand.”
Matthew 26:46

As Max Lucado writes in his book, “And the Angels Were Silent”:  “this verse was spoken of Judas, but it could have been spoken of any of us.”

We all, at one time or another, certainly have deserved to bear that moniker – betrayer!

That night with Jesus, there were sleepers when there should have been watchers.  Flee-ers when there should have been standers.  Deniers when there should have been heralds of the truth – that Jesus was Messiah.  Then of course that night, there was also a betrayer. One who had become so disillusioned with words and wanted action – “Either You are or You aren’t what I'm looking for, Jesus; and if You aren’t then get out of the way.”

How have you remade Jesus?  How have you redesigned the Savior to be what’s considered acceptable to you?  God came from heaven to save mankind not appease him and make his way easy.

Don’t loose sight of the fact that Jesus gave Himself over to the arresting crowd – to the betrayer.  Ten thousand Angels poised and ready for battle had to hold back that night.  All of this because Jesus knew in the midst of the sleepers, the flee-ers, the deniers, and yes even the  betrayers – there were sinners that needed a Savior!

We still do!

– Dale
