Our text today is from Matthew 26.
Verse14 Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests, Verse 15 And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver.
Here in this context our Lord is ready to be betrayed by one of his closest friends. Judas had been with our Lord for over 3 years and now he is in a position to sell out for money. Well he did sell out. He lost everything and in his case he lost his soul as well. Not a very good business deal.
How often we have a ‘sold out’ title above our head, house, or family. People come cheap now days. They don’t want to loose their status, job, popularity, or family so for a few bucks they are ‘sold out.’
Would to God more folks would be ‘sold out’ to God in service, talents, money, abilities, and time.
