Have you ever heard the old saying, “While he patted me on the back with one hand, he was stabbing me in the back with the other!” We’ve all felt like we’ve been betrayed by a friend or loved one and it sure doesn’t feel good!
Jesus was betrayed with a kiss by Judas and then later on he was betrayed by Peter, a man who said he’d die for him. After Judas realized what he had done he gave the money back and went out and hung himself. When Peter realized what he had done he went out and weep bitterly.
One killed himself, and the other repented! Have you betrayed the Lord with some act of sin? Do you feel like there’s no return? The fact is, you can be forgiven just like old Peter! The Bible says, “Repent ye therefore and return, that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord!”
