The problem for Christians is that when we identify ourselves as followers of Jesus, we must step up to the plate; we must, at least, match the well-meaning behavior of god-less but good human beings. Failing that, we are open to the accusation of the servant girl, “You also were with Jesus the Galilean”…so why are you here by the fire pretending you don’t know him?” (26:69). Is betrayal in our blood? As we ponder our complicit natures, let us pray that in our daily lives, we will remain faithful and true witnesses of our resurrected Lord.
- Matthew 26:14-27
