Tuesday April 11th Matthew 26: 55-56
At that hour Jesus said to the crowd, 'Am I leading a rebellion, that you have come out with swords and clubs to capture me? Everyday I sat in the temple courts teaching, and you did not arrest me. But this has all taken place that the writings of the prophets might be fulfilled.' Then all the disciples deserted him and fled.
The hour has come. Into the darkness step a crowd of men, armed and ready to seize one mild-mannered man. Coming at night, so that the crowds who follow Jesus in the daylight do not see. Scripture is being fulfilled, yet in this darkness, despite their teaching, and their love, the disciples lose faith and flee. In that darkest hour, the disciples cannot see what must happen to bring the true light into the world.
Have you ever been in a similar dark place? Faith and trust have fled from your heart, leaving you standing alone, fearful of the future. Yet, at other times, when your heart was so full of love and praise, you could never imagine yourself in such a situation. At times our faith can be truly tested.
Lord, help us to hold fast to our trust in you;
help us to stand firm in times of trial and never lose sight of you.
