Jesus Arrested

And Jesus answered and said unto them, Are ye come out, as against a thief, with swords and with staves to take me? Mark 14:48

Even though Jesus was innocent and never sinned, he was treated like a criminal. He was beaten, spit on, cursed at, tortured, and eventually put to death. Was there any justice during his trial? No but Jesus allowed this all to happen for You! All these events needed to be fulfilled so Jesus could be your atoning sacrifice for your sins.

Imagine the humility and obedience it took for Jesus to allow this to happen, the same man who raised people from the dead, had to allow himself be put to death.

I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and ye took me not: but the scriptures must be fulfilled. Mark 14:49

Jesus brought the Truth of the Word of God to the world, The Word became Flesh. But still many rejected Gods true word. But just as Jesus said the scriptures needed to be fulfilled, let the will of God be done. And by his obedience to fulfill Gods will, he saved the world.

And they all forsook him, and fled. Mark 14:50

During Jesus ministry you couldn’t even get near him most of the time, everyone wanted to be healed or forgiven. However during Jesus time of need, everyone abandoned him. Even his own disciples, who he taught them everything, left him to save themselves. How quickly we forget Gods word when times get tough

However Jesus said he will never leave or forsake us, and he kept that promise to his disciples. After he rose from the grave, he returned back to his disciples. He will never leave us or forsake us either in Jesus Name Amen
