DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Stand With Christ
The religious leaders were waiting for Jesus after conspiring with the Jewish Council in order to sentence Him to death. They were oblivious of the fact that they were only fulfilling God’s plan of Jesus to pay the ultimate price for the salvation of the world. Judas held up his end of the bargain he had earlier made by handing Jesus over to the armed gang who were to take Him. Verse 50 tells us that the disciples forsook Jesus and ran, perhaps due to fear of being taken along with Him. Along the line in our Christian journey, we will face difficult circumstances and it might seem logical to run and abandon our faith to improve the circumstances we find ourselves in. Christ paid the ultimate price for us, so there is nothing we will ‘suffer’ for His sake that can be compared to the price He has paid.
Point of Emphasis: The persecution we will face is a child’s play compared to Christ’s sacrifice for us.
Prayer Point: Lord, grant me the grace to stand with You when tough times come.
