The Grip of Sin
Today's reading: Luke 22:1-53
With Easter coming this Sunday, we're going to break away from Genesis to read the account of Jesus' arrest, crucifixion, burial and resurrection from the Gospel of Luke in chapters 22-24. There's a lot taking place in each of these three chapters, so each day as you read ask God to reveal something of significance or something new that you haven't noticed before.
Sin and its powerful influence stood out clearly to me from the first few verses of chapter 22. The chief priests and scribes, the highest ranking religious officials whose lives were supposedly dedicated to upholding God’s law, are actively seeking to murder Jesus. Then Judas, one of Jesus' twelve disciples, betrays Him to the Jewish leaders in exchange for money.
Today's passage shows us clearly that everyone sins. That being the case, in what areas are you most likely to give in to sin? Why is it important to be aware of this? Tami
