“Here. You just take the money back and give me Jesus and we’ll pretend this never happened.”…said Judas to the chief priests after he realized his mistake in betraying Christ.
“Yeh, right.” was their response.
So he hung himself.
Judas went to the wrong people hoping for a change in his future. He went to the wrong people to find peace for what he had done.
He should have went to Jesus first.
Finding forgiveness from others can make you feel better. But Jesus’ forgiveness is the only one that will bring change to your future and true peace in your life.
Be sure to seek Christ’s forgiveness first and foremost. His acceptance of your repentance will help you to better cope with how others react to your change of heart.
