Mark 14:12-21

“The Son of Man will go just as it is written about him. But woe to that man who betrays the Son of Man! It would be better for him if he had not been born.” (vs. 21)

Sometimes God works through and with us, as we willingly partner with Him. On the other hand, sometimes He works through us, in spite of us. God used Judas’ betrayal for the greater good. But that does not make Judas’ betrayal, in itself, a good thing. Judas still had a choice. He chose to do wrong. And he suffered for it, as Jesus predicted in this passage.

I don’t know about you, but I would rather be a willing participant in God’s plans. Instead of Judas, may I be like Isaiah, who said “Here am I. Send me.”
