Joh 13:25 That was why that one leaned close beside Jesus saying to him, “Lord, which is it?”
Joh 13:26 Jesus answers, “He’s the one to whom I give the piece of bread after I have dipped it.” That was why, after he had dipped the bread, he gave it to Judas, of Simon Iscariot.
Joh 13:27 After the piece of bread, Satan entered that one. So Jesus told him, “Do what you’re doing quickly.”
open eyes to the present
Only John was close enough to Jesus during that meal to understand the significance of what Judas was going to do. John also witnessed the very moment when Judas had resolved to carry out his plan. John describes it as a moment when Satan entered Judas. It is a heavy responsibility to understand the future. But it is an even heavier weight when the Lord opens our eyes to the present.
Lord, give us the strength to bear the weight of the knowledge you call us to bear – awareness of your plan for today.
