Day 16 – Judas hangs himself

Mat 27:3-5 (NKJV)

Then Judas, His betrayer, seeing that He had been condemned, was remorseful and brought back the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, 4 saying, “I have sinned by betraying innocent blood.” And they said, “What is that to us? You see to it!” 5 Then he threw down the pieces of silver in the temple and departed, and went and hanged himself.

On Jesus Journey to the Cross, He encountered people continually making poor decisions. The problem with wrong choices is they can have dire consequences. They can affect your life for a very long time or like with Judas, be irreversible. Victory in Life requires us to make choices that will gain us yards in life, not push us backwards. It starts with choosing Christ, then morphs into deciding to live in accordance to His ways. By making those two choices and sticking with it, all other choices will come that much easier. Think about it. If you’ve decided to live according to the mandate of scripture, then choosing to steal, to burn someone, to cheat, to harm someone becomes a no-brainer decision. This is what I call, knowing the Word and acting on the Word you know.
