1 John 3:20-21 — Even if we feel guilty, God is greater than our feelings, and He knows everything. Dear friends, if we don’t feel guilty, we can come to God with bold confidence (NLT).
Judas’s betrayal and subsequent suicide is a tragic tale. When he saw Jesus condemned, Matthew 27 records that he was seized with remorse, which resulted in him taking his own life (vs. 3-5).
Judas Iscariot was the mastermind behind the plot to assassinate the Son of God—an idea that might have sounded good but ended in not one, but two deaths. He did the unthinkable and just wouldn’t let himself off the hook. His story is not unique.
Do not be another casualty of self-condemnation. Others will sling plenty of mud pies at you; there’s no need to double the recipe. Christ paid too high of a price to overturn your guilty verdict for you to keep holding yourself captive. You are not guilty.
You may feel shame, but God is greater than your feelings. The blood of Jesus silences the voice of self-condemnation. This is your reality in Christ.
