• A Tragic End for Judas Devotional

    Matthew 27:1–10

    Matthew Henry comments, “Some have said, that Judas sinned more in despairing of the mercy of God, than in betraying his Master’s blood.” Neither Judas’ betrayal nor his suicide is the unforgiveable sin, only his refusal to seek the grace of Christ. Peter and Judas both committed heinous transgressions, but Peter found restoration when he repented. Today let us repent of our sins and turn to Jesus, knowing that He offers pardon to all those who trust Him alone. View Resource

  • Jesus Predicts His Betrayal Devotional

    Matthew 26:20–25

    Calvin reminds us to “always place before our minds the providence of God, which Judas himself, and all wicked men — though it be contrary to their wish, and though they have another end in view — are compelled to obey.” The Lord is able to bring about what He wills even through the wicked deeds of men. We should therefore trust that He is working out His good purposes for His people even as others do evil to us (Rom. 8:28). View Resource

  • Judas’ Wicked Scheme Devotional

    Matthew 26:14–16

    Judas’ betrayal of the Savior is the most wicked deed ever committed. It warns us to be careful lest sin take hold of our hearts and make us turn our backs on Christ. Those who truly know Jesus will not finally betray Him, but it is possible even for Christians to become disenchanted with the way God works out His plan and fall into transgression. Let us take care to remember that we have no right to call the Lord’s way of doing things into question. View Resource
