The Difference Between Peter & Judas

in Forgiveness/Unforgiveness Jesus Pride/Humility

Here's today's Bible Minute with David Chadwick.

Have you ever thought about the difference between Peter and Judas? I mean they both did the same thing. They both denied the Lord. They both said they didn't know Him. They both rejected Him, betrayed Him. But there is a huge difference.

Judas ran away from Jesus and ultimately hung himself in complete rebellion against the Lord. But Peter was different. Ultimately, Peter and Jesus met and Jesus asked him three times, "do you love me more than these?" It was a direct correlation to the threefold denial of Peter denying that he knew the Lord.

The difference between Judas and Peter is that Peter went back to the Lord. Peter received forgiveness. Peter repented from his sins and he moved forward in life. Just make sure in your life that if you're truly sorry, you go back to the Lord. That's the difference between being a Judas or a Peter.
