Have you betrayed Jesus?

When it was evening, he reclined at table with the twelve. And as they were eating, he said, “Truly, I say to you, one of you will betray me.”  
Matthew 26:20-21

Jesus knew who would betray Him, what he would do and into whose hands He would be delivered. The omniscience of God here not only reveals that He knew what was about to happen to Him then, the Lord also knows all things pertaining to our lives today. Everything we’ve done, including those things we’re thinking about doing later.

This knowledge of God’s omniscience should cause us to look at our own lives and ask ourselves, “Have I been faithful in my relationship with Jesus, or have I been a fraud in my relationship with Jesus? Have I compromised my relationship with Jesus, by allowing other things, to become more valuable to have in my life, above the Lord?”

Judas betrayed Jesus into the authority of the Roman soldiers, but each one of us have betrayed Jesus to the authority of the Ten Commandments, as the Ten Commandments stand in judgment of our sin.

Remember this: As much as Jesus knows the worst things about you, He loves you still and the greatest demonstration of His love is His death on the cross, for your sin and mine.

Don’t betray Jesus by allowing something else to have authority over your life that will condemn you in God’s judgment, instead, repent of your sins and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ who died for you, to save you from God’s judgment.

That’s the Good News of Easter.
