Sovereign, Eve of Easter part 2

Read: Matthew 26-28

Imagine, as you read today's text, the power of God working in all that takes place. When Judas is caught up in sin, it is about the victory of Jesus. When the priests and the governors are wicked (if they have any backbone at all), God has still placed them in power. When Peter denies Jesus, it is because God has allowed it. Marvel for a moment at the incredible sovereignty of the Living God.

Jesus was no victim of circumstance, caught up and taken to His death against His will by His enemies. He was, and is, the King. Everything that He went through was planned from the beginning, as He voluntarily laid His life down for you and for me. Easter is not the story of  God clenching victory from the jaws of defeat. Easter is the illustration that God always has a plan and that it will always come together.
