Don gave announcements and Pastor Stan preached…

if you Seek God you’ll find him, if you want Truth read the word of God.
God is real, His spirit lives in us, He has all the power and He just wants us to come to him.

Matthew 26:47-56
While he was still speaking, Judas, one of the Twelve, arrived. With him was a large crowd armed with swords and clubs, sent from the chief priests and the elders of the people. Now the betrayer had arranged a signal with them: “The one I kiss is the man; arrest him.” Going at once to Jesus, Judas said, “Greetings, Rabbi!” and kissed him. Jesus replied, “Friend, do what you came for.” Then the men stepped forward, seized Jesus and arrested him. With that, one of Jesus’ companions reached for his sword, drew it out and struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his ear. “Put your sword back in its place,” Jesus said to him, “for all who draw the sword will die by the sword. Do you think I cannot call on my Father, and he will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels? But how then would the Scriptures be fulfilled that say it must happen in this way?” At that time Jesus said to the crowd, “Am I leading a rebellion, that you have come out with swords and clubs to capture me? Every day I sat in the temple courts teaching, and you did not arrest me. But this has all taken place that the writings of the prophets might be fulfilled.” Then all the disciples deserted him and fled.(NIV)

We’re going to focus on the kiss of Judas….the betrayal….his best friends had just fallen asleep on him more than once and now the another betrayal… He was left soley alone to bare our sins, He was completely alone and by himself…God was identified Jesus by a betrayal…the expression of affection (a kiss) became the instrument of death.

how about you? have you ever experienced that kiss from someone who was close who really let you down or betrayed you… the closer the friend the deeper the hurt…

Isaiah 53:6
We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.(NIV)

-all of us have let Him down and caused Him to have to goto the cross, we all fall short of the Glory of God

in our lives there are a lot of buts however even after Simon denied Jesus He was restored…. and Jesus even told him before he fell that he would be restored…..
When Jesus forgives us there are no strings attached, it’s a full meal deal restoration…

SUCH GOOD NEWS!! He loves us and even though every one of us has deserted him and fled He has never left us, HE is such an amazing God! We will never be alone again!!!
