Bahan Alkitab: Matthew 26:14-56; John 13:26-30; Matthew 26:57-27:31; Luke 22:61-62; Luke 23:6-11
his week we learn about the last supper, Judas betrayed Jesus, gethsemane until Jesus was captured by the religious leaders.
The disciples thought that they can be faithful to Jesus, but they were afraid and betrayed HIm. Peter denied Jesus three times. It is very hard to be a faithful follower of Jesus. You can be a faithful follower in every situation only because you have the Holy Spirit living inside you.
The Bible says, “The Lord is my helper” (Heb. 13:6).
You need to depend on Him because even though you may want to be a faithful follower of Jesus, it’s not always easy.
The soldiers brought Jesus to the home of the temple high priest, where the other leaders had gathered. They hated Jesus and wanted to have Him put to death. But they couldn’t find anything to accuse Him of, so they brought some men who would tell lies and accuse Him of things He hadn’t done. Jesus was innocent. He was not guilty of any sin.
Unlike Jesus you and I are not innocent. We were born guilty sin. Sin is wanting your own way instead of God’s way. The Bible says you deserve to be separated from God in a terrible place called Hell because you are guilty of sin.
Jesus took all of that suffering and pain for you. He was innocent but took all your guilt on Himself when He died on the cross. He knew this was the only way your sin could be forgiven. The Bible says, “But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God” (John 1:12). You receive Jesus by believing (trusting completely) that He is the Son of God, who died and came alive again for you. When you receive Him, He will forgive your sins and make you His child. He will change you on the inside so you can live to please Him. Someday you’ll be able to live with Him in Heaven. Will you receive Him today?
1 Peter 3:18
For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit.
