Fake Love – Why you need a Judas kiss to reach your purpose
It seems that the word “fake” has certainly been thrown around a lot lately
Fake news, fake friends and fake tan
Plus, the ever-popular saying; “Fake it till you make it”
Has been so over-used it’s just not cool anymore
But what about fake love?
You know, the fake love that always betrays you with a kiss
Kinda stings, doesn’t it?
A kiss that burns into your soul
Long after Judas has departed
But what if that kiss is just what you need?
What if the betrayal was God’s way
Of helping you reach your purpose?
Every superhero needs a villain
It’s what gives the superhero his purpose
No Lex Luther – No Superman
No Joker – No Batman
What purpose would the hero have, if it weren’t for the villain?
When we read about Judas selling Jesus out
For 30 pieces of silver
And then sealing the deal with a kiss
We wonder why Jesus ever called Judas to become a disciple in the first place
When he inevitably was going to betray the Son of Man
‘No sooner were the words out of his mouth then a crowd showed up, Judas, the one from the Twelve, in the lead’ Luke 22:47
There’s always seems to be a “crowd” showing up
When you’re at your lowest point toward your purpose
And there is always a Judas leading that crowd
Puckering up his lips for the kiss of betrayal
Satan will do his best to stop your purpose
He’ll find someone right under your nose
To sabotage your destiny
He’ll make sure “a crowd” shows up
To gloat over your betrayal
But this is the brilliance of the cross
Jesus, was prepared for His purpose
No Judas – No cross
No cross – No redemption
Satan took the bait
And we were saved!
Every story needs a villain
Every story needs a plot twist
Will you let the kiss of betrayal propel you into your purpose?
Judas’ story ended hanging on a rope in the middle of a field
But Jesus’ story was just beginning
Fake love and a Judas kiss?
Maybe it’s the preparation you need
To reach your purpose
And fulfil your destiny!
