Luke 22:1-2 The Festival of Unleavened Bread, which is also called Passover, was approaching. The leading priests and teachers of religious law were plotting how to kill Jesus, but they were afraid of the people’s reaction.
Each of the synoptic Gospels gives an account of the plot kill Jesus. In each Gospel the enemies of Jesus carefully planned his arrest, trial, verdict and execution around their fear of the people’s reaction. They succeeded in hiding this wickedness from the people. But it should be noted that injustice fears the power of the people. No matter how tired we may get we must keep up the pressure on the authorities to act justly and to walk humbly. We must make sure that we keep watch even in the midnight hour!
Lord give us strength to be a force for justice and a voice for the voiceless
Help us to be a powerful outcry always ready unlike the people who weren’t there for You
