  1. Yes, we are sometimes like Judas. But here is something to ponder, Jesus knew what Judas was doing all along and yet at the end offered him the Passover/Communion.

    We are called to speak the truth in love, and even reprove and rebuke with all longsuffering, but in the end God will even catch the wicked in their own snare.

    Wow, and this from an Arminian!

  2. Your tagline for this post hit the nail on the head, “empty religion”.

    That’s the best and simplest description of Judas Iscariot and his life.

  3. Good find Mike. Yes I think we can all relate to this one.

    Wow, and this is from a Calvinist!
    I had to add that for Rick…. 🙂 You are right Mike…..we don’t need labels.

  4. I really feel bad that God has opened doors for me and I was to afraid to walk through them. Like someone dying a couple years ago and she was a Catholic.I am so sorry God. Don’t those things just break your heart. I am a coward sometimes and I really feel shame and sadness.

  5. Am I like Judas? I would have to answer yes. For I daily fall into serving myself rather than Jesus. However, though I continue to fall short, I also continue to grow ever so toward that prize…rest in Him…I am finding more and more rest in Him! The more “me” He strips away, the more He shines! He is an amazing God!

  6. Amen, Sherry. We should grieve over our sin but it is His righteousness to which we cling and bring Him glory and thus we don’t dispair. Talking about the Arminian vv Calvin, that reminds me of how unloving each side gets toward each other to the point of calling names all the while they are rebuking each other for their doctrine….shame, shame…that’s like calling Jesus names!

  7. Yes; there are times we act that way, giving in to the flesh. It hurts! It hurts, and we turn back in brokenness to the Bishop of our souls. Thank God for grace and mercy.

    Thank God we have a High Priest in the heavens!

    We need pinching messages like these every now and then to remind us that at the end of the day, our righteousness is of Christ, and we must strive to keep our eyes and hearts on Him. Him alone.

    Thanks, Mike, and God bless the writer of this article.
