Tonight, the disciples were alone.
They were afraid because their friend, their mentor, their Jesus was gone from their lives in an instant.
I can’t imagine that feeling. Hopeless. Alone. Uncertain. Scared. Doubtful. Angry. Despair. Tears. Sadness.
He just left. Sacrificially. Willingly. And…
Jesus sat down and ate with sinners, prostitutes and tax-collectors, did he not?
Doesn’t mean he approved of what they were doing, but it also didn’t keep Him from loving them.
