Jesus loves Judas despite his betrayal of the Master. Jesus continues to love his betrayer even as the act of disloyalty occurs.

There is some of Judas in each of us, yet God still loves us. May we display the courage that Judas lacked and ask for forgiveness.

Gracious god, I am a sinner and I know it. Please forgive my betrayals and renew my sense of Your love for me. May I begin anew today.
