S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
Then Satan entered Judas, called Iscariot, one of the Twelve.
This is the sad story of Judas Iscariot, one of Jesus’ Twelve, opening his heart’s door to betrayal. The chief priests and teachers of the law were afraid of the people because of Jesus’ ministry, and they needed someone to betray him. They found Judas, who had opened his heart’s door for Satan to enter in.
Judas was the treasurer of Jesus and the other disciples’ money bag. Because he was in charge of the money, the money had given him a sense of entitlement as if it was his money. He began opening the door of his heart to Satan’s promptings long before the final deed was done. He questioned how Mary could use such an expensive gift of perfume to wash Jesus’ feet. He even took some of the money for his own, and the disciples knew it. But here, he sold the Son of God for thirty pieces of silver because of a crack in the opening of his heart’s door that eventually turned into a full-on open door to Satan. It should cause all of us to remember, “There Are Times You Must Keep Your Heart’s Door Closed!”
This AM, I want always to keep my heart’s door open to your leading. At the same time, however, help me always to keep it closed to the temptations of the devil. Amen
