A purpose for Judas

Although Jesus knew that Judas was a thief and a traitor, He permitted him to stay with His group of disciples. He knew that Judas was necessary to fulfill the plan that God had for His crucifixion. Is God permitting “Judases” in our lives? Does He want to use them to crucify certain areas in our lives?

But we can be encouraged, that if a Judas brings us a cross, God will also send a “Simon of Cyrene” who will help us carry it. And the end result will be resurrection and new life!

“I affirm, by my boasting in you which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.”(1Cor. 15:31)

“But if Christ is in you, the body indeed is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is alive because of righteousness.”  (Rom. 8:10)
