Sharon's comments included with this song:
Jesus didnít weed out Judas, even though He knew he would
Judas has been with Jesus, exposed to His teachings just like the other eleven men. But he had ideas of how he thought things ought to be, and he just couldnít change his mind because he was looking for an earthly kingdom instead of a heavenly one. That was where his heart was, and he tried to force Jesus to change His mind, to agree with him by these various ways. But Judas ended up hanging himself clutching those useless pieces of silver which he had received for selling his Savior out.
We have Judas here - we might be a Judas. Any church, any heart can have the ďJudas spiritĒ.
Is my heart yielded to God, committed to His ways and not my own? Will I change my mind, repent, and yield, no matter how it hurts my pride, my flesh? Will I hold on to those 30 pieces of silver just as long as I can? Is it too late for me Ė is my heart hardened by the deceitfulness of sin, from hearing the Word of God and continually hardening my heart until I can no longer hear?
Judas never did repent.
2 Cor 7:10 ďFor godly sorrow produces repentance to
salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death.Ē
