Judas Iscariot, one of the Twelve, went to the chief priests to give Jesus up to them. When they heard it, they were delighted and promised to give him money. So he started looking for an opportunity to turn him in.
Mark 14:10-11, Common English Bible (c) 2011
When – or how – do we “give Jesus up”?
When – or how – do we step away from Jesus’ way, close our hearts, shut our eyes, stop up our ears, refuse to respond to a need?
Conversely, how do we boldly follow Jesus?
