Kiss of Death

October 30, 2008 Leave a comment

How creepy and evil that Judas identified Jesus’ identity with a kiss.

First off, didn’t everyone know who Jesus was already? Second, why use a kiss? How about a hearty handshake? Or a simple, courtroom-style, “That’s the man I sold out for 30 pieces of silver!”

These verses, 43-52, make me consider when and how I betray people in my life with a kiss.

Anytime I talk behind someone’s back, I’m guilty.

Anytime I laugh at someone else’s mean-spirited joke, I’m guilty.

Anytime I feel embarrassed by my faith in Christ, I’m guilty.

All I’m left with is the opportunity to respond with sincere repentance.
