Scripture: Luke 22:19-23
In Luke 19:23 we see Jesus giving a perfect example of the preparational price of ascension. He is there to serve and as He is breaking bread and passing it out He mentions the fact that His betrayer is with them on the table. Verse 23 says, “Then they began to question among themselves, which of them it was that would do this thing.” They could not discern who among them was the betrayer. If they were unable to discern the betrayer, were they in any position to go judicial? And the answer to that question is obvious. They were not, not even close. The twelve had some growing to do. It doesn’t mean that He is not going to take them through it. And He did take them through it, just as He’s taking us through it right now. They had to grow to the place where they could represent the judicial Christ. We have to grow to the same place. God is just as committed to our developmental path as He was to the twelve. Once we accept that, we can actually expedite the process by saying, yes to Him and embracing His principles.
