For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (Romans 3:23 KJV)
I believe it is time for us to realize that we are or were all sinners. We only have hope at eternal life because of Jesus Christ.
Don’t judge someone because they sin differently than you.
We all have our flaws. If we were perfect and had it all together, we would not even believe we needed God.
He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. (1 John 4:8 KJV)
– God is love, and his love is unconditional.
– Nothing we say or do can make Him love us more or less. He loves us not because of what we do, but because of who He is.
– God surely loves everyone. No matter of your gender, ethnicity, sexual preference, or lifestyle. He doesn’t approve of your sin, but he surely does love you more than you can ever comprehend.
Christians must realize that whenever we see people on the road, it isn’t right to judge or condemn them. That was us without the grace of God.
If we are believers in the church, we must pray that the same God we serve will help these people the same way. You’re a Christian because of the mercy of God, not because of your personality! You’re better than no one, do not become prideful!
We serve a perfect God, but we as humans are not perfect.
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. (Matthew 5:48 KJV)
When Jesus spoke these words, he did not say be flawless. The word perfect here means a state of maturity in your Christian walk. So we will stumble here and there, but we should not stay down. We should rise up again and live victorious through Christ.
Since we aren’t perfect let’s spend our time working on ourselves, and stop finding fault with others.
Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye. (Matthew 7:1-5 KJV)
This does not mean let people live in sin without correcting them. You are to rebuke in love, but you should never look down on others. You have your secret sins, don’t be hard on people because their sin was exposed.
When I wake up and look in the mirror, it is to see what I have to adjust before going out into the public. Not to see what to fix on others! So when I go into my spiritual mirror (the bible), it is to see how to fix my OWN self! We have spend time in our bibles to learn how to fix ourselves up!
Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. (Galatians 6:1 KJV)
I believe every man who does wrong must be dealt with, but I strongly believe in a God of second chances. A God of love and mercy.
Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. (1 John 3:16 KJV)
– There you have it! Lay down your lives for others.
– Don’t ever look at people as your enemies, the only enemy you have is Satan.
And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins. (1 Peter 4:8 KJV)
-Stop exposing others!
-If you love someone, you wouldn’t want to embarrass them or make a mockery of them!
Sin is sin! Righteousness is all God wants, but stop beating on those who really want to do better. Give God the chance to work on them, stop trying to be God in their lives. God changes people, you can only influence them.
This blog is not to condemn anyone or beat up on those who verbally abuse people. Just to ask everyone to examine themselves. God bless! Share this, live it, practice it. Be the difference you want to see in the world.
