Matthew 26:

Betrayal by Judas. I forget off-hand but one of the accounts of the Last Supper the writer describes that Satan enters Judas, that passage floors me. But in this chapter the importance of communion is shined upon, remembering what Jesus went through in His body, but also what His blood represents to those who believe in Him.

The denial of Peter is heavy, however God’s forgiveness and mercy is so much greater. Could you imagine going through the hardest time in your life and those that are closest to you desert you? I know I would be pretty hurt and unforgiving. Jesus, not only forgave all of them, He used them to spread His name and glory throughout the earth! The Power of Forgiveness.

The sufferings of Jesus begin here in this chapter, mocking, spitting, slapping, punching. Could you imagine when these people have to face Jesus, or God in heaven? Wow.

Matthew 27:

26 – This verse describes the physical torture before the cross. This punishment was described by the prophet Isaiah hundreds of years prior to it happening. The book of Isaiah was written around 700 B.C; you can do the math. But what’s so important about these verses is it describes that Jesus suffered physically so we can be healed. By the stripes on His back we are healed!

32-44 – Jesus was inches from death then forced to carry a section of His cross. Then nailed to it with huge iron pegs, square pegs. His right hand first, then His left hand. Then they nail, or fasten the crossbeam, raise Him up, stretch out His legs and drive one huge nail through both legs. I could not imagine this pain. He did this for you and me. Then He hung there for hours.

51 – When the curtain rips, God shows that now through Jesus’ death we have access to the throne of God. We can humble ourselves, repent of our sins, and kneel before His throne asking for help, even though we have never done anything to deserve it.

52 – Not only did these men and women raise from the dead, but Jesus will raise all those who believe in Him from the dead to enjoy eternal life with Him!

Psalm 125:

Verse 2 is so cool. I have recently experienced the type of Love God has for us with feeling totally surrounded by Him. What’s so cool is not only does He surround His people, but He surrounds us both now and forever. So amazing, Thank you Jesus! That word forever is a word that no one living has ever experienced. This past Sunday in church I was thinking about that word. How we truly have no concept, feeling or imagination of what forever really is. But our God is forever, He is eternal and His love and mercy upon us is forever!
