WOW! A must read…to think that I betray Him everyday with the same kiss as Judas. Oh Lord lead me today in Your steps, guide my every move and action, let Your precious name be glorified…
“But what if I should be guilty of the same accursed sin as Judas, that son of perdition?
I have been baptized into the name of the Lord Jesus; I am a member of his visible Church; I sit at the communion table: all these are so many kisses of my lips.
Am I sincere in them?
If not, I am a base traitor.
Do I live in the world as carelessly as others do, and yet make a profession of being a follower of Jesus? Then I must expose religion to ridicule, and lead men to speak evil of the holy name by which I am called. Surely if I act thus inconsistently I am a Judas, and it were better for me that I had never been born.
Dare I hope that I am clear in this matter? Then, O Lord, keep me so. O Lord, make me sincere and true.
Preserve me from every false way. Never let me betray my Saviour. I do love thee, Jesus, and though I often grieve thee, yet I would desire to abide faithful even unto death.” – Charles Spurgeon
