Thought for the day 31 March

Wednesday 31 March

Today is often known as “Spy Wednesday”.   It is the day that traditionally we remember Judas making a deal to betray Jesus.  As the story of Judas unfolds we ultimately see him take his own life after the shame of what he has done overtakes him.  Shame is such a powerful emotion and can easily destroy us, slowly eating us up inside.  However, the story of Holy Week is ultimately a story of restoration and renewal.   It is a stark reminder that our shame is never too big for God. In fact, Paul writes to the early church in Rome and reflects on the life, death and resurrection and says “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor principalities, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39)
