And they led Jesus away to the high priest; and with him were assembled all the chief priests, the elders, and the scribes. Mark 14.53

No one would lay hands on the Lord if He didn’t allow it to happen. After all, we are talking about the Being who created all things and holds all power. So, since He is not afraid of anything, He allowed Himself to be taken by sinners. His “permission” occurred because He would have to die for us, or we would never be saved. This is what Jesus came to do on Earth, and He certainly did not fail in this mission.

The events that befell the Savior when they took Him away were known to the Father and had His permission. Likewise, problems and adverse situations that arise do not go by unnoticed in God’s eyes. However, in order for us to be approved, He allows these “setbacks”. Thus, as we come out of trials, we will be stronger and better prepared for other battles. No evil shall befall us (Psalms 91.10)!

The price paid by Christ was very high; after all, we have a very high value for the Lord, which we don’t even know how to quantify. Now, nobody spends a lot on something that is worth little. One would never buy a bicycle for the price of a car, but if it were made of gold, yes. We are made of the same essence as God, so we are eternal and indestructible. Get right with the Most High!

Judas Iscariot accepted a small fee to betray the Master, who had called him to be one of His disciples, preparing him for the most noble role a mortal can have on Earth. However, like Judas, there are others who don’t care about the Lord’s plan for their lives and cry out for independence. Later on, they will come to the same conclusion as Judas did: The 30 pieces of silver were too little, compared to the evil done!

When Christ was led to the high priest, all the chief priests, scribes and elders of the people gathered around him. This is also seen when someone renounces the Lord’s purposes and decides to abandon Him, standing against true wisdom: A man who isolates himself seeks his own desire; He rages against all wise judgment (Proverbs 18.1). Poor defendants of the Judgment!

Judas considered that 30 coins were enough to give him happiness, but when he saw the Master in the hands of sinners, being slapped and spat at, he came to his senses and, throwing the coins into the temple, did worse than before: he hanged himself. Why didn’t he ask forgiveness from the One who could forgive him? Well, many insist on continuing in error, instead of going to the just Judge and asking for clemency. Don’t make the foolish decision, but draw near to God now!

The Word says: Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent (Revelation 2.5). Your training is not over yet, and if you have fallen, that is not good. Get right with the Lord and get back in fellowship with Him!

In Christ, with love,

God of love! What a price Your Son paid for us, going to Calvary to die in our place, despising affronts for the joy that was set before Him! It was not by chance that He suffered, because You gave Him this mission. You love us!

We have been given the task of representing You, before a world corrupted by power and sin, where people think only of eating, getting up and resting. But, little by little, we have brought the awareness of eternal life to millions - and many have repented!

Help us to show people Your love, so that they will leave the path of evil and turn to You. Otherwise, they will go to eternal damnation. Don't let us take any other attitude, for we have found You, and we don't want to get lost. Amen!
