“Prepare to Be Used”
 
This following scripture verse shows us the heart of the disciple Judas.
We are told this about Judas.
 
John 12:6
6 He did not say this because he cared about the poor but because he was a thief; as keeper of the money bag, he used to help himself to what was put into it.
 
So it would seem that Judas had a stealing problem.
 
This problem helps lead to the following.
 
Please read the following verses.
 
Luke 22:1-6
1 Now the Feast of Unleavened Bread, called the Passover, was approaching,
2 and the chief priests and the teachers of the law were looking for some way to get rid of Jesus, for they were afraid of the people.
 
3 Then Satan entered Judas, called Iscariot, one of the Twelve.
4 And Judas went to the chief priests and the officers of the temple guard and discussed with them how he might betray Jesus.
5 They were delighted and agreed to give him money.
 
6 He consented, and watched for an opportunity to hand Jesus over to them when no crowd was present.
 
As I think about Judas, it looked like he was serving and would be used by the Lord God.
 
However, this was not the case.
Judas allows himself to be used by Satan.
 
Jesus says in Matthew 12:30
30 “He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters.
 
We are either for the Lord God or for Satan.
The one we serve will be the one who uses us.
