There’s not much written about what Jesus did on Wednesday on this week. I guess we must assume he spent the day doing his normal chores and then heading off in the evening to Wednesday Church.
Seriously, it is interesting that with all the recorded events on the others days, we really see no action today, except for the agreement between the religious leaders and Judas to sell him out.
Old Judas, the traitor. But I can’t help but think about how many times I decide to sell out and not follow the Christ for my own personal gain. How about you.
So on this day when those most unholy negotiations took place, consider the negotiations on your docket today. Consider your motivation and your ability to be steadfast to the one who will set you free.
31-32Then Jesus turned to the Jews who had claimed to believe in him. “If you stick with this, living out what I tell you, you are my disciples for sure. Then you will experience for yourselves the truth, and the truth will free you.” (John 8:31-32, The Message)
