Two Of The Saddest Words

“Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve. And he went his way, and communed with the chief priests and captains, how he might betray Him unto them.” Luke 22:3-4 (KJV)
In these verses from Luke’s Gospel we find two of the saddest words in the Bible. Judas Iscariot had walked and talked with Jesus, had witnessed His mighty miracles, had been present when He taught. Yet after all that he had experienced in his association with the Lord, we read in this passage that he went “his way“–the way that led him to destruction and eternal damnation. “His way” was the way to personal fame–he followed Jesus for the glamor of it. He must have been an unusual person, for he was elected secretary and treasurer of the disciple band and he carried the money. “His way” was the way of greed and personal advancement. When Mary anointed the feet of Jesus with costly perfume, Judas protested. He said, “Why was this perfume not sold for three hundred denarii and given to the poor?” But he really did not care for the poor; he simply wanted more money in the bag so that he would have more to steal (John 12:1-6). “His way” was the way of death: “There is a way which seems right to man, but its end is the way of death.” (Prov. 14:12). The only right way is to walk with Jesus; He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No man comes to the Father but by Him (John 14:6).

The Gospel According To Jesus – Part 108

“What did Moses command you? Because of the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept. But from the beginning of creation, God ‘made them male and female.’ ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together let not man separate.”
Mark 10:3, 5-9 (NKJV)
