Daily Devotional (April 21st): Feeling Betrayed?

by Aaron Dunlop

MIS85-2

“Pastor Peter said, ‘People will betray you, but Jesus never will.’ Much of my past fell in place when he said these simple words. Here is what I gleaned. Betrayal deepens our love for Jesus (who will never betray us). Betrayal deepens our knowledge of Jesus and his sacrifice, obedience, and love. (Jesus was betrayed by his chosen disciples and by all who call upon him as Savior and Lord by our sin). Finally, betrayal deepens our Christian vision: The Cross is a rugged place, not a place for the squeamish or self-righteous” (p. 59–60)

Reading: “…There is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother —Proverbs 18:24
