Thirty Pieces of Silver
We’d all like to think we’re nothing like Judas the betrayer, who traded Jesus for thirty pieces of silver. An honest look at our hearts reveals, however, that we all have things we trade for Christ every day. Whether it’s comfort, power, control, or some other idol, we all make our exchanges. As we approach Easter, this series invites us to treasure Christ above every idol and temptation.
Judas was willing to trade Jesus for thirty pieces of silver. Jesus is worth more than anything else to the believer. Beware of what you are tempted to trade him for.
