could it be..... Satan?
so i accidentally did the readings for the 24th yesterday (because i wrote it after midnight) so i'm doing the readings for the 23rd today.
what jumped out at me was when Satan jumped into Judas Iscariot. that's a pretty scary thing the gospel says there. Satan entered Judas. I wonder how that happened. how did Judas get to the place where, even after spending every day with Jesus for three years (ish), he was open to Satan entering him?
it shows that no matter how much time we spend doing religious things.... we can still be far from Him in our hearts. He had the sternest words for the most religious people during His time... and the kindest, most forgiving words for the worst sinners.
i guess that makes me feel better, being the miserable sinner that i am. :)
God, please help me to walk close to you in my heart as well as with my feet.
