Luke 22:47-48 NIVUK

While he was still speaking a crowd came up, and the man who was called Judas, one of the Twelve, was leading them. He approached Jesus to kiss him, but Jesus asked him, ‘Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?’

I always find these words disturbing. It is easy to say I am not like Judas, but how often to I act as if I love him or follow his ways and yet look below the surface and you’ll discover it’s just a show? 

Lord forgive me my two-faced nature. Help me to be less like Judas and more like Peter who might have let you down but learnt from it and accepted your forgiveness.
