Holy Week - GUIDED to PEACE

Tuesday of holy week - FALLING AWAY is written by Ed Arle

You will all fall away because of me this night.

Matthew 26:31


Now that I think of it, Palm Sunday would have been the day someone should have stood up and shouted, "Go back, Jesus; it's a trap!" Of course, I wasn't there. And had I been there, I no doubt would have held back and kept quiet, not wanting to draw attention to myself. So even if I had inside information as to what was in store for Jesus, I would probably have kept quiet.

Even today, I prefer to blend in, becoming just another face in the crowd. I think in many ways, I'm like the young man who followed Jesus until the soldiers tried to grab him, at which time "he left the linen cloth and ran away naked" (Mark 14:52). I'm embarrassed and ashamed to think that I would have done the same thing.


Lord Jesus, that was then, this is now; I don't want to run awymore. Open my heart and my lips to tell your story. Your cross makes it my story too. Amen.
