How Did You Feel…? Part 3 of 5

How did you feel, Malchus, servant of the High Priest…

when Peter cut off your right ear? Were you relieved that you were not dead? Were you grateful when Jesus rebuked His disciple and restored your ear? Did you recognize who Jesus was or did you believe that the miracle was owed you? Did you act with the other servants when they struck God’s Son with the palm of their hands? Or did your miraculous healing help you to hear God’s voice speaking salvation to your soul?

How did you feel, O High Priest…

when your servant returned after Jesus was taken into custody? When he told of Peter cutting off his ear and of Jesus’ kindness to make it once again whole, were you gripped with reverential fear or did it harden your heart with hatred?

Were you grateful when Jesus rebuked His disciple and restored your ear? Did you recognize who Jesus was or did you believe that the miracle was owed you?

How did you feel, O High Priest… when your servant returned after Jesus was taken into custody? When he told of Peter cutting off his ear and of Jesus’ kindness to make it once again whole, were you gripped with reverential fear or did it harden your heart with hatred?

How did you feel, O Cross… when wood from Creator’s Hand and nails from man’s hand met to crucify the precious Lamb of God? How did you feel when the spear was thrust in His side and blood and water ran down to the ground? Did you understand that you would replace the altar of the old covenant? Did you know that the Son of Man told His followers,”If any man will come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me.”? How did you feel, O Cross, when your burden was made heavier as the sins of the world were laid upon Jesus?
