Betrayal

Mark 14:17-19
When it was evening, he came with the twelve. And when they had taken their places and were eating, Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, one of you will betray me, one who is eating with me.” They began to be distressed and to say to him one after another, “Surely, not I?”

One  of you will betray me...
Surely not I, Lord?
Surely not I?
Betrayal lives in us
Betrayal lives
deep in the recesses
of all we keep hidden
Betrayal lives in us
when we take the easy option
and settle for a quiet life
Betrayal lives in us
when we refuse to speak up
and let our voice be heard
Betrayal lives in us...
And Christ on his way to the cross
embraces our betrayal
simply placing it
within the sphere
of forgiveness 
and grace
that was God's response
to hatred and evil.
One  of you will betray me...
Surely not I, Lord?
Surely not I?

Prayer
God, may we accept that betrayal lives in us along with the forgiveness found in your response to evil.
