One of the hardest things in life to deal with is betrayal be it by your loves ones or just people that come and go in and out of our lives. Leaving memories like footprints in our mind for eternity, I think that Jesus knew how it felt to be betrayed. Judas betrayed Jesus and Jesus even said to Judas’s face, “Verily I say unto you thee, That this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.” Mat: 26:34 Even thou Judas denied Jesus, the Lords love for Judas never for even one moment wavered.
He did not deny Jesus once he denied Jesus three times, and the Lord just showed him love and understanding while he gave Jesus a kiss that marked him with death and marked him as the king of kings and the Lord of Lords. After the kiss of death, the soldiers took him away. Jesus knew his end was very near, betrayed by his own friend and treasured disciple. It would be nice to demonstrate love as Jesus illustrated love in his end days to the very ones that turned there back on him with the ultimate betrayal that cost him his very life….
