In service today the pastor talked about Peter and Judas. He said
that Peter was able to overcome his betrayal of Christ because he was listening
to the Word of God which was deeply embedded in him. Judas on the other hand was
listening to the voice of the world (resonating loud and clear). Both men
followed Jesus during His three year ministry. Both had opportunity to hear the
merciful voice of God and that of the world. Yet, only one man continued on after the
resurrection to teach and disciple followers of Christ while the other, didn't
see nor experience the Passion of Christ.
When choices are before you, which of the two voices do you listen to,
God or the world?
Writing and observing are two of my favorite things to do. As I go along my day, I hope to share with you what I see or in some cases, what I hear.
