Preaching Points - How to Preach Matthew 26:47-56 - Jesus Arrested

(Read Matthew 26:47-56.)

Here's what I love about Jesus: Did you notice what He called Judas? Did you see what He told Peter to do?

Judas comes to betray, and Jesus calls him "friend"! He tells Peter not to attack those who came to arrest Him!

Jesus bears no ill will toward His enemies. He doesn't want them to come to harm. Even though, they are acting against Him, He still loves and cares for them.

I've heard people say that what they've done is too bad for even God to forgive. I think this passage shows that Jesus never cuts off anyone off from His love, not even His most infamous betrayer.
