A Shocking Revelation

Jesus sat down to eat with His disciples. Matthew then said, “Now as they were eating, He said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, one of you will betray Me'” (Matthew 26:21).
The disciples loved and respected Jesus. Eating with Him must have been an honor that they cherished. Good feelings filled the hearts of all present.
Suddenly, seemingly out of nowhere, Jesus prophesied that one of those twelve men would betray Him. What would that do to the moment? How would you have reacted?
After three and a half years of a close bond between all the men with the Lord, His words undoubtedly shocked them. How could one of them do something so horrible? Yet, Jesus spoke the truth, and they all later saw it come to pass.
If life never had speed bumps, we would fall asleep, but someone always keeps us awake. Be prepared for those moments and deal with them according to the wisdom God gives you.
