30 Pieces

And the LORD said to me, “Throw it to the potter”–the handsome price at which they valued me! So I took the thirty pieces of silver and threw them to the potter at the house of the LORD. Zechariah 11:13
What is Jesus worth to you? As prophesied more than 5 centuries before Jesus was born, God was valued at only 30 pieces of silver! 30 pieces of silver today is only worth about $600, so imagine selling your soul for less than a thousand dollars. It might buy you some pleasure today but give you eternal damnation!
This prophecy was obviously fulfilled by Judas, who sold out the Son of God for only 30 pieces of silver. What makes this so shocking was Judas was in the inner circle of Christ. He was one of the original 12 disciples, he witnessed the miracles performed, he was taught directly by The Lord himself, all the mysteries of Gods Kingdom revealed. Yet he still was overcome by his own greed and temptation to sell his own soul.
Many of us today are living like Judas. We know the story of Jesus, we know what he did for us on the hill at Calvary. But we still decide to fulfill our own lusts and addictions, even though we know it will cost us our soul. Don’t condemn yourself like Judas. Resist the devil and he will flee from you! Be strong in The Lord and gain eternal life in Jesus Name Amen!
