DIFFERING OPINIONS: DO NOT JUDGE

DO NOT JUDGE

AUDIO VERSION(<1MB): http://goo.gl/kSd3LF

Rom 14:3-4

3 The one who eats everything must not despise the one who does not, and the one who abstains must not judge the one who eats everything, for God has accepted him. 4 Who are you to pass judgment on another's servant? Before his own master he stands or falls. And he will stand, for the Lord is able to make him stand.

I have realized that many of us Christians are guilty of exactly what we are told not to do in today’s bible text. We judge others who are not in our denominations. One of the surest ways of judging is to believe that someone is going to hell because he does not do what you do; you're judging because in your heart, you have already sentenced the person to hell. Jesus teaches us that we should leave such judgment to God.

The most important thing for anyone is whether they truly believe in Jesus. If they do, all other contentious issues will be addressed by Jesus who is able to make them who truly believe to stand (see Rom 14:4b).

The thief that died on the cross next to Jesus, the one Jesus saved, would have been judged by many to go straight to hell, but he got to paradise before them all.

Go into today determined to obey Gods word by loving and not judging anyone, especially those who believe in Jesus. Your light is more effective when you don't reject and judge people but love and show them the way without contending with them.

Prayer: Thank you heavenly father because you have given me your grace, and I know I don't deserve it. I pray you help me walk more in grace and never reject or judge anyone again, in Jesus name I pray. Amen
