Do you think that I cannot appeal to my Father, and he will at once send me more than twelve legions of angels? But how then should the Scriptures be fulfilled, that it must be so?” At that hour Jesus said to the crowds, “Have you come out as against a robber, with swords and clubs to capture me? Day after day I sat in the temple teaching, and you did not seize me. But all this has taken place that the Scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled.” Then all the disciples left him and fled. Matthew 26:53-56
I am humbled and amazed at Jesus’ reverence for and submission to the Scriptures. I pray that our lives as faithful disciples of Christ would be marked by that same reverence and submission. I pray that God would lead us to repentance and stir within our hearts the proper view, honor, and obedience of His Word.
