We continue the series on examining what each disciple could have said when they left the upper room on the night Jesus was betrayed. Today, we hear from Andrew:
“Could this be the end? At least two or three times before tonight, Jesus has told us that he was going to be betrayed, be killed and rise again. And now again tonight, he tells us that one of us will betray him. Is this going to be the night?
You know, I was there from the beginning. I was with John the Baptist. I was there when he saw Jesus and said, “Look, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.” I thought, what an interesting name for a Messiah. Not a lion, but a lamb. And, to take away the sins of the world? Sounds more like a Passover Lamb slain to remove our sins than a conquering lion. Is this the night that Jesus is the Lamb of God?
I don’t know. But this is what I do know. That ever since leaving my family and following Jesus, my life hasn’t been the same. I’ve seen his miracles. I’ve heard his teachings. I’ve experienced his love. And even though there are times when I feel like quitting, I know that he will never quit on me. And for that reason, I will continue to follow him to the very end.”
