traitors at the table


devotional post #2064

Luke 22:21-23

Luk 22:21 But notice, the hand of him who betrays me is with me at this table.
Luk 22:22 Because the Son of Man goes as it has been determined, but tragedy will come to that man by whom he is betrayed!”
Luk 22:23 And they began to question one another, wondering who of them it could be who was going to do this.

traitors at the table

Barclay observed, “It made the tragedy all the more tragic that at that very table there was one who was a traitor. Jesus Christ has at every communion table those who betray Him, for if, in His house, we pledge ourselves to Him, and then if, by our lives, we go about to deny Him, we too are traitors to His cause” (The Gospel of Luke, 278).

LORD, may our loyalty to you never be questioned.
