Judas the Betrayer
A NOTE FROM PASTOR BOB
Our decisions drive our actions. The hope is we are making healthy decisions so that the outcomes are favorable and non-threatening. The truth is, however, that’s not always the case. Judas was one of the closest disciples to Jesus. In fact, we know when the meal was prepared in the Upper Room, Jesus had hand-selected the seat of honor for Judas. Ironic, isn’t it? The One who was to be betrayed gave the seat of honor to his betrayer? God’s ways are not our ways and God’s plans not our plans. In fact, God’s actions oftentimes are totally opposite to ours. The truth is, Jesus knew of Judas’ betrayal and what lay next; despite that, Jesus never wavered on his journey to the cross, which would offer forgiveness to all.
