Lenten Devotional - Day Twenty-Eight

Day 28:

Read: Matthew 26:47-56


Think: Deserted. Betrayed. Those were the realities that Jesus faced as He was being arrested in the garden. His own disciple turned Him in with a kiss and the rest fled in fear. Have you ever felt betrayed or abandoned? Have you felt temped to “fix” the situation with gossip, anger, or harsh action like one of the disciples did with the sword? Even though Jesus was alone, He wasn’t really alone. God had a plan and was giving Jesus the strength to see it through—so that you could be rescued. How can you cling to Jesus and trust His plans even when you feel alone?

Pray: God, even if none go with me, I will follow you. I will die to my old life so I can be resurrected to new life in you. Even when I feel like I’m alone, I won’t give up on you.

Apply: How is Jesus calling you to push on and persevere in pursuing Him, even as you feel alone? Invite one of your five from Day 21 to church.
