The Separation From God

45 And when he came, he went up to Him at once and said, “Rabbi!” And he kissed Him. 46 And they laid hands on Him and seized Him. 47 But one of those who stood by drew his sword and struck the servant of the high priest and cut off his ear. 48 And Jesus said to them, “Have you come out as against a robber, with swords and clubs to capture me? 49 Day after day I was with you in the temple teaching, and you did not seize me. But let the Scriptures be fulfilled.” 50 And they all left Him and fled. ~ Mark 14:45-50

The disciples walked and talked with God made flesh. They witnessed miracle after miracle. They even laid against His chest and listened to His heartbeat. They were His closest friends, but fear jumped on each of them, and when Jesus needed them most, they abandoned Him.

Each of us will one day face our fears for being a Christian. We only have today to prepare for it. So don’t waste the time you are given to train in Christ Jesus. Don’t waste the time you are given to strengthen your faith so that when fear comes at you with great force, you will stand firm in Christ Jesus.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Stand With Christ.
