Lenten Devotionals - Mark 14:32-53


Noooooo everything it about to be terrible now.

1. Disciples (particularly John, James, and Peter): get your act together. If a friend tells you that he is freaking out and please stay awake and pray, then stay awake and pray. This is especially true if that friend is JESUS. Stay awake. Pray. This is what I try to do.

2. Complaining is okay! Jesus was complaining to God. He was asking for the cup to be taken away. He didn't want to be tortured and die. But He was willing. You can complain to God, but you have to be willing regardless. I think that's what is tripping me right now: I really don't want to. And I really don't want to be willing. But if Jesus is willing, then I should be too.

3. Nooooo Judas. Nooooo. Also: betrayal with a kiss? I've thought it before, but that is COLD. A kiss is a sign of affection, or intimacy. It was used horribly. Gah.

4. I've listed to sermons about the streaker. I am still confused about the streaker.
