S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
Then Satan entered Judas, called Iscariot, one of the Twelve.
St. Luke tells us that there came an actual point where Judas Iscariot opened the door for Satan to fill him.
We know that Judas was the treasurer of the band of Jesus’ disciples. In John 12:6 and John 13:29 we are told that Judas had charge of the money. Oftentimes people who handle other people’s money have a tendency to begin believing it’s theirs after a while. This is what happened to Judas. Not only that, but he began complaining about what people did with their money. It’s as if he began to believe that Jesus could get any amount of money He wanted through His ministry, and of course he, Judas, would manage it. In other words, there would be MORE for him to misappropriate. All of these were ways Judas eventually fully opened the door of his heart to Satan. Before you leave for work this AM remember, whatever you do, “Don’t Give Satan An Open Door!”
As I read this passage this AM I thought to myself, “I will bolt the door with a massive padlock to my heart again today.” With Your help there will never be a crack for Satan to enter in. Amen
