Judas realizes the severity of his sin and repents in that he desires to change the results.  Sin always carries a consequence.  At times, repentance can lessen the consequences.  Other times, it does not.  Repentance is still the right thing.  It does not appear that Judas was repentant toward God (we hope he was) but rather just to those religious leaders.  True repentance begins with repentance to God and then to those whom we have wronged on earth.


Yield


Lord, I will live with a repentant heart for my own sin.

Revelation


The Holy Spirit convicts us of sin.  He convicted Judas.  Judas had either remained Marred by Sin and had never received Christ as His Lord and Savior or he had come to Christ and was horribly Misled by the Enemy…all the way to a suicidal end.  When the Holy Spirit convicts us and/or guides us into all Truth we must repent and then walk in the grace of God rather than take matters into our own hands in shame.
