And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13
“On the night when He was betrayed” is always how our pastor opens the communion portion of our worship service. On that night Jesus gave the cup, broke the bread and washed the disciples’ feet. On that night He sang a hymn with them and prayed in the garden. On that night he was kissed by Judas, arrested by the soldiers and betrayed by Peter. Yes on that night of nights in that darkest of darkness Jesus suffered long and was kind. He did not envy others but rather He let go of His rights, His position and His life.
Though we feel it is weakness allow even a single insult to pass without defending ourselves He remained silent as a lamb at shearing time. When our own small love is washed out to sea His love stands forever and receives all who come till time stands no longer!
