Scripture: Matthew 26:1-16
IMAGINE: Again, get in the heart and mind of Jesus. What do you think he is feeling, resting in Bethany yet knowing that even as he rests people are plotting against him, and preparing to murder him.
CONSIDER: Read 26:14-16 again. Consider Judas motives, what he must have been feeling in his heart at the time. Two types of people plot against Jesus in these verse. The first is Caiaphas, a chief priest. The second is Judas, a disciple of Jesus. Both these mean were religious. Both these men knew what was right. Yet, they both joined in on the plot to betray, arrest, and murder Jesus. Why do think people who know better are lead down a path of evil like this?
PRAY: Is there anything in your life that is leading down a path you know you shouldn’t take? Spend some time in prayer asking Jesus to cleanse your heart and mind fully. Pray and invite God’s Holy Spirit to expose if there is any pitfall or danger in your life that might be taking you down a bad path. Finally, thank God in prayer that he has made a way for you to be saved and rescued from evil.
