Then Satan entered into Judas called Iscariot, who was of the number of the twelve. He went away and conferred with the chief priests and officers how he might betray him to them. And they were glad, and agreed to give him money. So he consented and sought an opportunity to betray him to them in the absence of a crowd.
We’ve all probably heard the old cliche “the Devil made me do it.” Adam blamed Eve, Eve blamed the serpent, and the Devil blamed God. We like to put the blame on someone else. Our childhood, the way we were raised, our parents, a former pastor, a church you used to attend, it’s always someone else’s fault why you don’t follow Jesus. Actually, we’re each responsible for our own actions. Even Judas, the Devil, Satan himself, entered into Judas and that’s why he betrayed Jesus… yet, Judas went down to destruction because of what he did. “the Devil made me do it” isn’t really an excuse. Follow Jesus, no excuses, just start following Him today.
