Today’s verses are Luke 22:49-51 (NKJV)
When those around Him saw what was going to happen, they said to Him, “Lord, shall we strike with the sword?” And one of them struck the servant of the high priest and cut off his right ear. But Jesus answered and said, “Permit even this.” And He touched his ear and healed him.
Amazing, isn’t it? Jesus knew what they were going to do but he still didn’t strike out or back. He didn’t have to be “right” or “stand up for himself” and he definitely didn’t want anyone else hurt, nor did he want his friends to join in the fight. It was still peaceful as the majority of His walk was on this earth. He knew this was the Lord’s will and that was all that mattered. [As a side note: it is neat to see that they loved Him enough to fight for Him!]
