Feb 13 – Mat 26:31-56 – “watch and pray that you may not undergo the test. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak” (Mat 26:41)
We are capable of all sorts of evil and yet, Love will continue to conquer all. Yes, no matter how much we want to stop God’s love and grace, He will win in the end. Of course, our actions frustrate His love, but nothing will stop it.
As I continue to become aware that I can betray Jesus, I must realize that whenever I feel betrayed by someone I love or is dear to me, I have to do what Jesus did. He continues to love the one who betrayed Him. It’s tough, but it must be done otherwise evil will never be stopped. Yes: evil will end with me. But I need to absorb some of it and change it into good. How? By remaining firm in the Love of God for me.
It’s not easy at all; I have to constantly remain in union with God through prayer and watchfulness so that I may become stronger and stronger, capable of keeping Love at the center of my life.
