We look at the remorse of Judas over his betrayal of Christ. While some have speculated that this was genuine repentance and that Judas must be saved, we see from his behavior and the words of Christ that this could not have been so. We look at the characteristics of genuine repentance and those of worldly sorrow and are urged to examine our own hearts to discover which we have.

Finally, we see God’s plans being fulfilled in the act of Judas and in his remorse, and that this was even recorded several hundred years before by the prophets. As we have seen before, God will carry His purposes out, using even the sin and wickedness of men to bring about good and to glorify His name.
