FITC45 | Betrayed, Showing Kindness To Judas – John 13:1-20

FITC45 | Betrayed, Showing Kindness To Judas – John 13:1-20

Have you felt betrayed by someone? I have, and the feelings that go along with it are awful. Betrayal is the worst experience in human relationships. When a spouse cheats on their husband or wife, the pain can almost have a numbing effect. When a business colleague steals from their partner, it can sabotage the entire business, ruining any opportunity for future collaboration. Even worse, betrayal can destroy alliances and whole societies.

Key Notes to Remember

Jesus modeled and commanded a high standard for discipleship. We are to serve others, even those who betray us. This is an impossible standard for us without the work of the Holy Spirit enabling us to love those who have hurt us.
