Acceptance

I`ve started on reading Acts, (reading the New Revised English Bible) and one thing in Chapter 1, that caught my attention was verses 16 - 17. The way in which Peter, speaking to the crowd, acknowledged that Judas was one of them and had a place in their ministry.

It made me wonder how hard it had been for Peter to accept and recognise that. Imaging the disciples anguish at and after Jesus`s death, comparing it to the way that today we can hold grudges against people and be unforgiving for far less serious things than that.

Also, I`d always before thought of Judas as being "in the wrong", so to speak, but that made me stop and think too, if he hadn`t done as he did, how would Jesus`s death and resurrection have come about?

this is such a good point Rose. Judas was one of them. It must have hurt. But they let go of the hurt and went on to change the world ... there's a message in that too.

be blessed
