Holy Week Devotion – The Plot to Kill Jesus
What motivated Judas to enter into the plot to kill Jesus is unclear, but what is clear is that Judas allowed his desires to place him in a position where Satan could influence him. Judas accepted money from religious leaders to set up Jesus to be identified by the guards.
Judas has done us a favor!!!
Let us think about our commitment to God and the presence of God’s Spirit within us. Are we true disciples and followers, or uncommitted pretenders? We can choose despair and death, but we thank you, Lord, today for your gift of repentance, forgiveness, hope, and eternal life. We recall Judas’s betrayal that sent Jesus to the cross to shed his blood to guarantee that second chance, our only chance. Will we accept Jesus’ gift, or like Judas, conspire, plot, and betray him?
Prayer: May the grace and peace be in abundance to all God’s people through the knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord.
