“When daylight came, He summoned His disciples, and He chose 12 of them — He also named them apostles: Simon, whom He also named Peter, and Andrew his brother; James and John; Philip and Bartholomew; Matthew and Thomas; James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon called the Zealot; Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.”
Luke 6:13-16 HCSB
Side by side, shoulder to shoulder, walking and serving in ministry with you at church are those who masquerade as followers of Christ. They take communion and pray for others, and then one day they stun us when they walk away from faith. So it was with Judas. He was right there in Jesus’ presence, yet he never let Christ be Lord of his heart.
Are you going through the motions of playing Christian without surrendering the one thing God wants most—your heart? Are you willing to take the risk and leave behind your old life as Simon did when he walked away from his fishing boat? Have you transferred your affections from the riches of world to the One who created it?🚦
