Just As It Is Written

“For the Son of Man is to go just as it is written of Him; but woe to that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would have been good for that man if he had not been born. Mark 14:21

Don’t think for a moment that the Lord’s betrayal and crucifixion was happenstance. Jesus clearly knew what was going to happen to him, as well as all the players who would be involved.

It would unfold just as he had told the disciples that a donkey would be waiting for them in the village and that a large room would be available for his Last Supper.

You see, when he hung from the cross, it was he who surrendered his life, just as planned. Seeing this, some would see the plight of Judas as unfair. But such is the mystery of God’s workings. Unfolded by his hand, yet perpetrated by a man in full possession of free will.

You don’t dwell on these things too long. You accept them and exercise your free will in favor of the one with the foreknowledge.

To be safe, just stick with what was written!
