There’s something in us that wants to leverage God and his power for our end. We all try to get God in on our thing. We try to bargain with him through prayer, church attendance, giving, or short-term obedience. We promise to do what we think he wants us to do, if he will do what we want. In the Easter story, Judas was like that. He tried to get Jesus to do what he wanted, without regard for Jesus’ ministry and mission. That may seem ridiculous, but there’s a little Judas in all of us.

At some point, all of us are tempted to trade our relationship with Christ for something or somebody. But like Judas, the moment you make that trade, the value of what you received begins to diminish. Eventually, you’ll regret the outcome. You’ll wish you could go back and undo that decision. When we put aside our agenda and surrender to God, he takes responsibility for the outcome of the journey. — Andy Stanley #BadBoysOfEaster
