Judas forgot just one thing, and that one thing was the difference between life and death. Judas forgot that he was only one in a long, line of failed faithful. So many in Scripture committed grievous acts of betrayal against God. But each one found their way back to God's side through the back door of grace.
And then Judas died, marked as a betrayer. Why?
Because he forgot to try the door. Judas did not want a gift of grace.
The message of today is that God's grace is available to us all, that the back door to God is always open.
