Only a Friend Can Betray You

Have you ever been betrayed?  Ever felt that knife in your back when someone you love does you in?  

I’m Joni Eareckson Tada.  Have you ever been betrayed?  Ever felt that knife in your back when someone you love does you in?  The Lord Jesus was despised and mocked, but no pain cut Him as deeply as the moment in which He was betrayed.  An enemy will mock and despise you, but only a friend can betray you.  And that someone from the Lord's inner circle of closest friends stabbed Him in the back is very unsettling.  But, oh, how many times do we betray the Lord?  On one hand, we’ll sing "What a Friend We Have in Jesus" and then, turn around and act like He's anything but a friend.  I don’t want to be that way, and I don’t think you do, either.  Thank God that according to Luke chapter 22, Jesus prays that our "faith may not fail."  And, friend, this day is as good as any to join Him in that prayer.  May your faith not fail today; please whatever you do, don’t betray your Savior.
