Today is marked as Holy Wednesday, also known as Spy Wednesday or Silent Wednesday.

This is the day in Holy Week that we can presume that Jesus rested – He had had two grueling days after His triumphant entry into Jerusalem and He knew, and yes – carried heavily what the tomorrows would bring for Him.

It’s life changing when we really sit and think about these days – how He must have felt inside,  and then to top it off –  this is also the day that  Judas, one of His very own – agreed to betray Him for thirty pieces of silver.

This is hard to think about – simply because – we’re talking about Love Himself – the One who loves us like no other possibly can

The truth is – to love us unconditionally was in His very mind before we were even conceived  – oh yes – it’s easy to look back across time and shake our fists while wagging our tongues at this betrayer – yet not look at ourselves and the many many times we’ve done the same with our own choices – with our own thoughts  – with our own words, and yes – with our own actions.

So yes sweet friends  –  today as we look back in time, we humble ourselves – we ask our God to keep us from despair – we ask Him to keep us safe, while yes – asking Him to instill within us a deep sense of gratitude – for we know that we know that we know what comes – when it’s all said and done.

We are loved by love Himself.  He loves us big and He loves us strong, and yes – love wins period

“Then one of the twelve disciples .. the one named Judas Iscariot .. went to the chief priests and asked ..  “What will you give me if I betray Jesus to you?” .. they counted out thirty silver coins and gave them to him .. from then on Judas was looking for a good chance to hand Jesus over to them
