Judas Ate too

I didn’t write this but there was no way that I could read it and not share this with my blog family.  Do you wonder if you are loved?  You’ll never know how much.  Nic Burleson wrote….

Think about this for a second. Jesus knew.

He goes into that room with His disciples. He knows He is going to be betrayed. He knows it is Judas who will turn against him. He knows that He has been sold out for a handful of silver. Stabbed in the back by one He has poured His life into.

Yet, in that room, hours before the death of Jesus, Judas ate too. Jesus fed Judas too. Jesus prayed for Judas too. Jesus washed Judas’ feet too. I struggle to fathom that kind of love. A love that would feed the mouth that deceived you. A love that would wash the treasonous feet of the traitor. A love that could forgive even the vilest of betrayals.

I honestly struggle to comprehend it. And then, suddenly, I realize that I’m Judas. And in that moment, I’m so thankful & altogether overwhelmed that Judas ate too.

  1. I have thought about that, too. I guess as a theatrical person (I majored in directing) I tend to get a mental picture of the scenes I’m reading about, especially dramatic irony. You’re right, Jesus knew what was going to happen. He also knew all the ways we’d blow it – and as my little granddaughter marveled, “And He created us anyway?!” ❤
