“Come and Get Me!”

March 13, 2022

Bible Text: Mark 14:43-51 |


Today we take another step closer to Calvary as we witness the arrest of Jesus in the garden, by a group that some have estimated to be made up of 1000 men. It is the same group, as John’s gospel tells us, that fell to the ground as though dead when Jesus identified himself with the simple phrase, “I AM.” No matter what kind of force is brought against Jesus on his way to the cross, at every juncture we are reminded of his own declaration: “The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life-only to take it up again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord” (John 10:17-18).
