The chief priests and the Sanhedrin needed to fabricate evidence to have Jesus convicted. How hard it must have been for Jesus to endure the humiliation, beatings and false accusations, yet He bore it all for our sake. This is the cup He had asked the Father to take away earlier as He prayed. Are you going through a difficult situation? Do not lose heart. Are you touched by what Christ endured for your sake? Worship Him for His sacrifice. Matthew 26:57-67.
