Last-Ditch Effort (TJL 4.2)

Friday                                                                         John 13 31-35

Judas left to betray Jesus. Even as he was on his way to the chief priests and soldiers, Jesus began preparing the disciples for what was to come. What did He say? “Love each other. Just as I have loved you, so you also must love each other.” Jesus knew what Judas left to do, and His immediate response was to remind the remaining disciples that they would be defined by love, not revenge. Jesus refused to badmouth Judas, or provoke the other disciples to anger. Instead, He promoted love.
