Here Are Lessons To Learn From The Betrayal Of Christ

A kiss is an extremely intimate display of affection that is usually not cheap to give or receive, therefore one could question why Judas Iscariot chose to betray Jesus Christ using a kiss as the code (Matthew 26:48-50).

Psalm 41:9, for example, had to be fulfilled. "Yea, my own intimate friend, in whom I put my trust, who ate of my bread, has raised his heel against me.”

We must understand that God's word will always be fulfilled. Another lesson to be learned from Judas' treachery code was Jesus Christ's leadership style. He definitely had a close relationship with His disciples. There were no class distinctions or differentiations between Him and His subordinates. He bathed their feet, as a matter of fact. Anyone who witnessed Jesus washing the feet of His disciples could have mistook Him for a'servant of servants.' He gave His disciples the authority to do everything He did. What an important lesson for Christian leaders to learn!

Leaders must also be wary of close associates without necessarily suspecting them. This is because there is always one 'Judas Iscariot' among the twelve disciples. The truth is that, more often than not, a Judas is required for the fulfillment of God's plan for a leader's life. This is a difficult truth to face, but it must be shared.

However, there is a kiss that betrays not another person, but yourself! When you kiss someone who isn't your husband intimately, for example, you've betrayed your spirit man and empowered the flesh. "All things are permissible for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not," writes Apostle Paul (1 Thessalonians 5:22). 1 Corinthians 10:23; He also adds in Romans 14:21, "It is not good to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor to do anything that causes thy brother to stumble, or to be offended, or to be made weak."

In the name of Jesus, may you never be sold or sold yourself by a betrayal kiss.
