THE PROMISE OF THE FATHER
Before the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, Judas Iscariot, His treasurer, sold him for just thirty pieces of silver. Peter, who was about the boldest amongst the disciples, betrayed Him thrice in one night saying that he does not know Jesus. To worsen every thing; His disciples that dined with Him, lived with Him, worked closely with Him, ministered with Him, deserted Him. Only John the beloved stood by Him during the period of His greatest trial on earth, that of going to die on the cross for mankind. When Christ needed His disciples most, they were not available to encourage Him.
Beloved, are your closest associates, relations, co-workers, neighbors etc making jest of you because of your faith in Christ?
