How sad it is when a person spends years around Jesus, but isn’t changed by the message of Christ. Sadly, there are still people today who follow in Judas’ footsteps, rather than in Jesus’ footsteps. Judas was blinded by cares of this world, by money, by greed, by judging rather than accepting Jesus’ message. His leadership legacy is one of warning. Will you let Jesus transform your perspective?
For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.—1 John 2:16-17
Prayer: Lord, I lay down my will, my perspective on what is important, my earthly set of priorities, and how life is to be lived, how I should lead. Free me from what blinds me. Open my eyes; show me what matters to You. I pray in Jesus’ name, Amen.
