Matthew 26:20-22 ” When evening came, Jesus was reclining at the table with the Twelve. And while they were eating, He said, ‘I tell you the truth, one of you will betray Me.’ They were very sad and began to say to Him one after the other, ‘Surely not I, Lord?’ “

“One of you will betray Me.” You can only imagine what was going through the minds of the apostles. All but Judas were thinking, “How could one of us double cross our Lord? “It surely can’t be me!” But to add further insult to injury, Jesus informed them a little while later that they would all likewise fall away and desert Him. (Matthew 26:31) Betraying Jesus is much easier than we think, and it happens in a flash of hesitation, fear, or indecision. For anytime we don’t stand for Him and the truth… we betray our Lord.
