Good evening y’all. Happy Easter!!!! Jesus is Alive !!!
Today we looking at Matthew 26.
Be blessed 🙂
Judas Iscariot was one of the twelve disciples. He went to the chief priests and asked, “How much will you give me if I help you arrest Jesus?” They paid Judas 30 silver coins, and from then on he started looking for a good chance to betray Jesus. (Matthew 26:14-16 CEVUS06)
Judas betrayed Jesus. Not for anything else but for the love of money. He wasn’t content with what he had. This was a man who lived and walked with Jesus. He had access to everything that Jesus had yet He still wasn’t content. I am almost tempted to believe that He never loved or truly understood Jesus in the first place. He was just going with the flow because if he truly knew Jesus, he would have known that all he wanted was found in Jesus. Once you have Jesus, you have it all.
He was in love with money. It’s interesting that the religious leaders didn’t come looking for him because they would never had thought one of Jesus disciples will be the one to betray him. He went seeking them and he asked how they were willing to pay for him to give them info on Jesus.
This makes me think: how often do I allow myself be used by the enemy to betray Jesus? Every time I do the wrong thing purposefully, isn’t that the same as what Judas did? It’s like I am betraying him over and over…sending him to the cross again — sort off.
For a few minutes of personal gain, you betray Jesus….He chose money over Jesus
What are we choosing over Jesus
That’s why He told his disciples to stay awake and alert lest they fall into temptation.
“Keep watch and pray, so that you will not give in to temptation. For the spirit is willing, but the body is weak!”
(Matthew 26:41 NLT)
Let’s check ourselves today and identify those things that we are choosing over God.
***With God all things are possible***
