Tuesday, March 14th: Deuteronomy 22-24; Mark 14:1-26 ~ Jody

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is: Deuteronomy 22-24; Mark 14:1-26

"21 For the Son of Man[d] must die, as the Scriptures declared long ago. But how terrible it will be for the one who betrays him. It would be far better for that man if he had never been born!” Mark 14: 21

Even at the Last Supper, just before his final days, Jesus' was thinking of what Judas would have to live with. He had made peace with what was to come for Himself and He knew the price that Judas was going to pay for betraying him! This is a paramount revelation of sin - Jesus hurts for us as He knows the consequences that will come because of the sin we allow/choose in our lives.

And because of our loving Father's desire to protect us from eternal consequences of our sin, He sent His son. Father God, help me to not take my sin lightly. Press on my spirit to repent and allow the eternal consequences of my sin be left at the foot of the cross. Amen.

It is true that we take sin too lightly. I pray that I would remember the ultimate sacrifice that was paid so that I would turn away from disobedience.

So true Jody! God did not take our sin lightly, neither should we.
