MFM Daily Devotional 15 September 2023 MESSAGE
We have been looking at the pitfalls in Judas’ life. I am sure you have not lost tract in the last few days. Don’t be a judge to Judas but be a student that is learning from him to avoid the pitfalls.
Sad enough, Judas never thought of repentance, yet this glorious opportunity is available to every child of God. This is because God knows our human frailty. He gave us the opportunity to repent from sin, so that we can be restored and reconciled to Him in love.
There is always room for repentance, but Judas gave up on Jesus and hanged himself. There is no sin that God cannot forgive and no matter how anyone has gone in the miry clay of life, God can restore such. I strongly believe that if Judas had truly repented and gone back to God after the episode of betrayal, he would have been pardoned according to God’s words in Isaiah 1:18, “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”
Dearly beloved, Jesus is calling you today. Where have you missed it and fallen short of His glory? Don’t give up on Jesus. No matter how far you have gone in sin, you can always come back home. His arms of love are opened wide, waiting for you to return home. The Father’s love is forever available to welcome home the prodigal child. Nothing in this world should make a child of God to commit suicide; it is an expressway to hell. Suicide is no option. Only the fools and the weak, the ignorant and the godless indulge in it. Do not feel too big to come back to your Maker in repentance.
Sometimes, you may have genuinely repented but the devil is still bringing to you the voice of guilt and shame; rebuke him in the name of the Lord and forge ahead. The door of grace is still widely opened; come in now while you have the opportunity. Tomorrow may be too late!
