Judas Iscariot calls for our attention concerning where he stands in our consideration of what type of love he has. Surely there was no room for carnal love as a disciple of Christ but it is known that he fell short of divine love expected of him as close as he was to the Son of Man. The bible recorded for him as one with love of money which though not carnal but surely neither selfless nor divine. Our focus is to point out the futility in uncontrolled love of money or materialism. Christ love is forever divine and it ensured his return to The Father and got him seated at the right hand of the Almighty God. Jesus refused to succumb to the devil’s lure to worship him. Had He loved the splendor of the world, He would have failed to carry out the object of His mission. The bible assured us that Jesus is coming back, not as a baby born in a manger, but as the King of Glory to judge the quick and the dead.
The justified and the redeemed He would admit into His Father’s glorious mansion above. Conversely. the love of money saw the end of Judas Iscariot. He betrayed the Son of Man with an unholy kiss for a measly thirty pieces of silver and remorsefully committed suicide. Matthew 26: 47- 50 and 27: 2-3; Mark 14: 43-46
