How much would it cost to get you to give up your faith? For Judas, it was just a bag of money. The offer was too much for him to resist; he sold Jesus for a measly bag of money. How much would someone need to pay you to give up your Lord? I think that sometimes we sell Jesus for quite a bit less. We sell Him for popularity, for power, and for pride. We sell Him for instant gratification, for short-lived pleasures, and for promises of satisfaction. The only difference is we don't have to see Him die because He already went through that. Judas did, however, watch Jesus suffer, and he had to have come to an incredible realization of what he had just done to his friend. Are you selling Jesus? How much does a buyer have to pay? Though you might make a quick buck, it will cost you your life.
You are here: / / How much would it cost… (Luke 22)
