During Passion Week, Jesus focused on dying on the cross for the sins of the world (John 3:16 is great summary of why Jesus came to the earth).
On the Wednesday before His death, the plot thickened. Judas, went to the Chief Priest and negotiated the betrayal of Jesus (Luke 22:1-6).
Was Jesus swayed by evil or betrayal? No, Jesus focused on moving closer to dying on the cross for our sins.
Christians, stay focused on God's desire for your life. Yes you will have "haters" (John 15:18-20). The bombing of the Coptic church's in Egypt is an example of hate for Christian's by certain groups. Yes, people will smile in your face and turn around and betray you. Judas betrayed Jesus, Who only did good (Luke 22:47-48).
Do not be confused, detoured, or overcome by evil (Rom. 12:21), stay focused on and do what God's desire for you each day.
