Walking With Jesus - Wednesday
Jesus has reached the midway point of the week. There seems to be no record of any activities that Jesus did on Wednesday. I’m sure he spent the time preparing himself spiritually, mentally and physically for the rest of the week’s events. The next 3 days were going to be brutal, and Jesus knew it. Betrayal, arrest, beatings, a crown of thorns, a mockery of a trial, crucifixion and death awaited Jesus.
Jesus knew he had to prepare himself to face these extreme trials. Many times when trouble comes in life there is no time or opportunity to pray and prepare ourself. Jesus gives us a good example of always staying in close relationship with the Heavenly Father by spending quality time in personal prayer, worship and rest.
“Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.””
