  • Judas was known as “one of the Twelve”.
  • Judas knew exactly what he was doing and he is judged, as we are judged, by his actions.
  • Satan is working on all of us all the time, especially if you’re an important part of God’s Kingdom as Judas was.
  • Judas knew that things didn’t seem to be doing well at the time of our Scripture reading.
  • Judas not only abandoned Jesus, he took the opportunity to betray Jesus, which led to the wrongful death of the innocent Son of God in the flesh.
  • We are all Judases, actually or potentially.
  • What happened to Judas after he made his plan? Did he repent and go to Jesus for forgiveness?
  • Jesus never abandoned Judas, even to the very end. 
  • We might share in Judas’ weaknesses, but more than that, we share the same Savior.
  • During this season of Lent let us get rid of any thoughts of betrayal. Let us confess any such sins to God, and confess them to any person we have betrayed.
  • Let us follow Jesus. Jesus will never betray. Jesus will take every opportunity He can to pick us up when we fall, until He takes us to everlasting life.
Pastor Jim Spon | Luke 22:1-6
