Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
Matthew 5: 10-12 (KJV)
We have all had a Judas moment or scenario
in our lives. This can be such an anguishing,
searing pain. Yet the friend of all friends, our
precious Jesus said that if you are an authentic
follower of the great I Am, the narrow way, this
will indeed be so. For the true and passionate
followers of the Holy Lamb, Heavenly Father, and
gentle dove even in this we can indeed rejoice be
thankful, grateful, and full of grace for it is meant to
strengthen our faith and our resolve to follow Christ
even closer no matter what the earthly cost. Yet even
when this cruel betrayal occurred our perfect mercy, love,
grace, compassionate, and beauty filled Savior called his
betrayer friend.For when these Judas moments or scenarios
occur in our lives, know this, royals of the eternal kingdom
that is to come, great, great, exceedingly abundant is our
eternal rewards in our much-awaited, greatly anticipated,
longed for, beauty-filled, pain and tear-free, blessed,
glorious, eternal Kingdom of Heaven, our true home.
Isn’t betrayal the worst? Jesus was being kissed on the cheek and still called Judas friend.
