Judas Iscariot is always remembered as the disciple who betrayed Jesus. Luke 22:3-4 (NKJV) says; “Then Satan entered Judas, surnamed Iscariot, who was numbered among the twelve. So he went his way and conferred with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray Him to them.”
But the truth is, it isn’t Judas alone who betrayed Jesus; many of us have. We have betrayed Jesus by not living for Him, and going on in life as if His Great Sacrifice on the Cross was a vain quest.
Sadly, Judas took his own life after feeling remorseful for what he did (Matthew 27:3-5), when he could have been forgiven of his sins.
Yet today, we know Jesus lives and is ready to forgive all of our sins if we’ll only come to Him. Unlike Judas, we have a second chance. Jesus has done His part for us, He has paid the great price for our sins; and it is left for us to do ours. We have no excuse; no excuse at all.
