Mark 11:18-19
And when the chief priests and the scribes heard it, they kept looking for a way to kill him; for they were afraid of him, because the whole crowd was spellbound by his teaching. And when evening came, Jesus and his disciples went out of the city.

His fate was sealed
He played right into their hands
Like poking a bear with a stick 
He refused to back down
Refused to slouch away
But got right up into their faces
And confronted them with their shortcomings
There was no going back
No retreating into the shadows
No way out
The authorities were out to get him
And get him they would
His fate was sealed

God on those days when you call us to step up, give us courage not to take the easy way out but to confront what goes against your way of love and grace - and face the consequences with you right beside us.
