Into His Hands

“And supper being ended, the devil having already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray Him,
Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands, and that He had come from God and was going to God,
rose from supper and laid aside His garments, took a towel and girded Himself.” John 13:2-4

I’m amazed at how focused Jesus remained on the tasks at hand, given the intensity of the situation.

Oh Lord, may I go out comforted and confident today, doing what You have given me to do for this time, knowing in the end I will be with You for eternity. And here’s a simple poem . . .


By God and of God
and from God, He came
To us and for us
because of us, He came
laying His robe
His home, His life aside
picking up our sins, our shame
back to God now, He flies.

Chosing Judases

“Then Mary took a pound of very costly oil of spikenard, annointed the feet of Jesus and wiped His feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the oil.” John 12:3
“Then one of His disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, who would betray Him, said,” John 12:4
“‘Why was this fragrant oil not sold for three hundred denarii and given to the poor?'” John 12:5
“This he said, not that he cared for the poor, but because he was a thief, and had the money box; and he used to take what was put in it.” John 12:6

Jesus knew all of this about Judas, and more, when He chose him to be among the twelve.

Thank You, Jesus, for choosing me and drawing me close to You even though You knew all I had done, was currently doing and would yet do. And here’s a simple poem . . .

What He Knew

How can You know
everything about me

even the hidden flaws
and motives I don’t see

yet love me so strong
and so completely

that none of it matters
but You transforming me.
