With a Kiss

The name Judas carries such strong negative feelings.  Today I read of a close friend who had confided in an older man only to learn the older man didn’t keep the story to himself.  My friend was quick to refer to the older gentleman as “Judas”.  Judas, though two thousand years ago, still brings back all the hurt and emotion we’ve ever felt in our bitter betrayal stories.

This week, we will see that despite any reason or rationale, Judas actions were so hurtful and damaging particularly because of HOW he did what he did.  Take a look at the ugliest story with the greatest ending.  You will be amazed at where you find yourself in this story.  It is not where you think!


Matthew 26:48-50 –

Now the betrayer had arranged a signal with them: “The one I kiss is the man; arrest him.”  Going at once to Jesus, Judas said, “Greetings, Rabbi!” and kissed him.  Jesus replied, “Do what you came for, friend.” Then the men stepped forward, seized Jesus and arrested him.
