The reason of Him being betrayed is not because he offended anyone but to set the captives free, to open the prison doors. In order for us to be strong men and women, we need to embrace the full gospel. The church needs to be ready for times when things do not go the way they expected. There will be seasons in our live in which Jesus will allow us to carry our own crosses.
