In this text we encounter a tragic story, that of Judas, one of the Twelve, rejecting Jesus and conspiring with Jesus’ enemies to betray him. This story serves as a sobering warning to each of us as readers today. It reminds us that we have a spiritual enemy aiming to and of the danger sin poses to our lives. We need to guard our hearts from sin’s deceitfulness and lean fully and continually on Jesus and his marvellous grace. In him alone are we secure.
