Can Judas serve as a warning to believers? Alistair Begg explains that while Judas followed Christ, he never truly gave his life to Him. His vision of Jesus’ purpose and ministry were different from God’s, and he couldn’t reconcile his desires with the Father’s plan. Following his own priorities opened the door to temptation from Satan—and he chose not to resist. If our vision for our life is shaped by Jesus, though, we will have a faith that perseveres.
