Title: Judas’ Kiss
Band: Petra
Album: More Power To Ya
Year: 1982

I wonder how it makes you feel when the prodigal won’t come home
I wonder how it makes you feel when he’d rather be on his own
I wonder what it’s like for you when a lamb has gone astray
I wonder what it’s like for you when your children disobey

It must be like another thorn struck in your brow
It must be like another close friend’s broken vow
It must be like another nail right through your wrist
It must be just like
Just like Judas’ kiss

I wonder how it makes you feel when no one seeks your face
I wonder how it makes you feel when they give up in the race
I wonder what it’s like for you when they willingly disobey
I wonder what it’s like for you when they willingly walk away

Ever listened to a song for years, knowing the lyrics to it even. And then, one day, the true meaning of it strikes you, and hard? Ya, that’s what this one did to me today. Do you realize that, every time you sin, you are essentially putting another nail into Jesus’ wrist? And that you are betraying He who gave His life for you? Not to mention that you are dishonoring His Name. So think of that next time you’re thinking, “It’s just once…and it’s sooo small. It won’t hurt anyone.” Maybe it won’t hurt you, or your friends or family, or even any human being. But, at the very least, it will hurt Christ. For we are the ones who crucified Him in the first place…

“…if they fall away…they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame” (Hebrews 6:6 NKJV)

Are you holding the hammer?

God Bless,
Peregrinus.
