Has Your Betrayer Come?

Jan 20

by Victoria Robinson

Girlfriends, have you ever experienced betrayal? The pain hurts sooo bad! Betrayal is such an ugly sin. As we all know, our Lord and Savior experienced the ultimate betrayal. In the book of Mark, Jesus said the dreaded words, “Here comes my betrayer!” He knew all along this was going to happen. Unlike Jesus, the betrayals in your life have most likely happened unannounced. After the shock subsides, you are left with agonizing pain. The pain in turn has the potential to produce in you a bitter heart. Once this happens, you are now taking on the ugliness of your betrayer.

Just like Jesus, your betrayer has possibly come from those closest to you which might make the thought of forgiveness unimaginable. Yet it is important to stop the cycle of misery by forgiving your betrayer. Think of it as giving yourself a betrayal makeover. Trust me girlfriends, your beauty will shine like your Lord and Savior!

Dearest girlfriends, I pray we would deal with betrayal in a godly manner and allow the forgiveness of our heavenly Father to flow through us.

… Here comes my betrayer! ~ Mark 14:42 NIV
 
Yet there are some of you who do not believe.” For Jesus had known from the beginning which of them did not believe and who would betray him. ~ John 6:64 NIV
 
See to it that no one misses the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many. ~ Hebrews 12:15 NIV

Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. ~ Colossians 3:13 NIV
