The Night Jesus Was Betrayed...

The Night Jesus Was Betrayed…


I wonder what it was like the

 night Jesus was betrayed…

I’m sure the look upon his face was

one of sadness displayed.


The one whom he had called a disciple…

To be among friends…

Sold him for a few pieces of silver...

And soon Christ’ trial began…


Judas… Who betrayed him had

 a last chance to be forgiven.

But refused to “change the course”

 in the way he was livin.’


His life came to a  quick and sudden death…

He had a chance to repent before

he took his last breath.


How many of us have betrayed

this one who loves us?

God gave us his son…

But can he really “trust us?”


Will you take and sell that which

 God has given to you?

Will you turn your back on the

one who says; “I LOVE YOU?”


Christ has given to you the

best he could give…

Think of his sacrifice…  Each day you live…


Please don’t “sell out” for a few

pieces of silver or gold…

Jesus can give you eternal life

 and his glory to behold!


Won’t you accept God’s gift

with an opened heart?

Allow him to give you a new beginning… 

And a fresh start!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
