Today is Spy Wednesday. It is the day that we remember when Judas agreed to betray Jesus for thirty pieces of silver.
Read Matthew 26:14-25
What must it have been like for Jesus to be betrayed by one of his closest friends?
Lord God, your Son, our savior, was betrayed by one of his closest friends and gave himself up to be whipped and spit upon: Help us to joyfully accept the hard things in our lives because we are confident of the glory that will be revealed; through Jesus Christ your Son. Amen.
