Jesus Permits His Capture

by Andrew Forrest

It’s very important that we understand Jesus was not a passive victim. When Judas approaches him in the Garden of Gethsemane in the dark, Jesus permits the guards to capture him, rather than attempting to fight or flee.

Judas and the others think they are in control, but actually Jesus is in control.

The same is true today. The evil powers of the world think they are in control, but in reality God is using their wickedness for his own purposes.

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

Romans 8:28

Today’s Scripture:

Luke 22:47-62
