#ec1dot10 - Betrayal Sucks, My Friend
On this episode:
Being betrayed sucks. We all know that. Betrayal usually signals the end of relationships. But not when it comes to Jesus. How is it possible that someone could look their betrayer in the eye and call him, “friend"? Betrayal is the topic and the disciple Judas is the subject on this episode of Another Empty Conversation.
Everyone loves a good story and it seems that the more an audience can connect with the hero the more enjoyable the story becomes. When it comes to the story of the Bible Jesus is undoubtedly the hero. But, because of his nature as divine we often have a hard time connecting our lives with his. God wisely chose to showcase people who are easy for us mere mortals to relate with. The goal of our initial series "Who Can Follow Jesus" was to bring out different aspects of Jesus' closest followers in hopes that you can relate to them.
So, what can we ultimately learn from the story of Jesus’ hand picked followers?
There is room for everyone in the kingdom of God and the only requirement is opt in to the call to follow Jesus.
Is it time that you opt-in and say yes to following Jesus? I think so...
From all of here at Empty Church - Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
We will see you in 2016 when we all hit the Jesus Gym.
