The One Who Walked AwaySpeaker:
Dr. Danny Campbell
This young convert was deeply impressed and determined to make these the rules of his life. From that day onward throughout his life he made it a rule to spend the first moments of his day alone with God and God's Word. Before he read a letter, looked at a paper or even read a telegram, he went first to the Bible, that the first impression of the day might be what he got directly from God.

The one who walked away Luke 22
He was there…
All along, Judas Iscariot had kept following Jesus on the outside, but he never did on the INSIDE.
Who was Judas?
Iscariot probably comes from two words, Ish, which means man, and Kerioth, which is a town in southern Judea. Put that together and you have that Judas was a man from Kerioth in Judea. He was the only disciple not from GALILEE.
What two things led to Judas’ betrayal?
Judas never truly BELIEVED in Jesus John 6:63-71
Judas never truly REPENTED of his sin John 12:1-8
Disobedience leads to a hardened heart, and gives the Devil a FOOTHOLD. For those who don’t know Jesus at all, Satan can develop a stronghold from which he uses the person to lie, kill, steal, and destroy.
Judas let Jesus wash his feet but not his HEART.
Judas had MINISTERED often in Jesus’ name without truly knowing Jesus.
Note that the same crowd that egged you on to dishonor God will DISOWN you the moment you wish you hadn’t dishonored God.
Regret and remorse aren’t the same as repentance and faith.
After we have let Jesus down, how do we know we are a true disciple like Peter instead of a false disciple like Judas?
