John 17:12, “While I was with them, I kept them in your name, which you have given me. I have guarded them, and not one of them has been lost except the son of destruction, that the scripture might be fulfilled.”
Many refuse to go to church because of the hypocrites who attend. Yet, one of the disciples was a hypocrite.
John 12:6 says Judas Iscariot pilfered money from the funds donated to Jesus’ ministry. The other disciples were aware of his dishonesty.
But they kept following Jesus…right next to a hypocrite the – one who sold Jesus for 30 pieces of silver!
We need to keep our eyes on Jesus. If we look to others in the church, we will be disappointed.
