Friday 15th April
‘Jesus asked the crowds “why do you charge me for blasphemy for saying ‘I am God’s Son?’”…Then they tried to arrest him again, but he escaped from their hands. (John 10:36, 39)
One more contentious conversation; people feel under threat; they try and arrest Jesus. God, challenge my easy preconceptions about Jesus and the times when I am unwilling to let him be your Son. As I draw near to Holy Week, may I not be afraid to come close to the harshness of the reality of Jesus’ suffering, so that on the third day I may see again the joy of his resurrection life.
