Station Two - Betrayal

Jesus, we remember the moment. That heartbreaking moment of betrayal when as you and the sleepy disciples turned to leave the garden, one more arrived leading an angry crowd. Your friend Judas kissed you - not to greet you with love, but to betray you. And we, who are often so quick to greet you with kindly words of affection in our prayers and worship, see something of ourselves. Our lips have both blessed your name and betrayed your love. We say we love you and we do. But Jesus, please help us to love you with all of our hearts - all the time. Forgive us for the times we have pledged our love for you, but didn't live it. Set us - set me free to be wholly devoted to you, even when I not exactly sure what you are up to. I will trust and follow you anyway. By your grace I will. So we pray with those who have made the Stations across the centuries and around the world: "We adore you Lord Jesus and we bless you, for by your very cross you have redeemed the world." In Your strong Name I pray. Amen.
