Think Twice Before Making A Decision; Here Are Lessons From The Story Of Judas

"And Judas the brother of James, and Judas Iscariot, which also was the traitor" (Luke 6:16).

"...who also was the traitor," what a way to introduce him! His decision, though, was without a doubt correct. He wasn't chosen to play the traitor, but he found himself in the part! One can't help but wonder what happened to Judas Iscariot, who had the distinct honor of being one of Jesus Christ's twelve disciples. When Jesus chose Judas from among the other eleven disciples, he did not make a mistake. He had prayed for days and nights and had finally arrived at the number twelve. Judas had the same possibilities and privileges as the other eleven because of His choice.

He was taught and educated by Jesus, and with the others, he was uniquely empowered and commissioned to go on evangelistic outreaches that resulted in testimonies of signs and wonders, including the devil being subjected to them. However, he had an unfavorable suffix to his name, which led to his untimely demise. One example of someone who fell from grace to grass is Judas. He was not meant to be a traitor by a sad fate. There is no such thing as predestination or fate. Every human being is a free moral agent who has the right and freedom to make decisions but is responsible for them.

Judas chose to barter his prized position as an apostle of Jesus for only thirty pieces of silver, which he never got to enjoy. We should be cautious with the decisions we make since they will determine our fate. We should also be aware that our social positions or advantages are not permanent. To keep our positions and continue to enjoy our benefits, we must be diligent in our obedience to the Lord and in making the correct choices and decisions.
