Is It Up To Us To Judge?
I believe that as Christians and as disciples we should strive to obey the very words of Jesus Christ. He is our teacher and we are his students. I would love to challenge each and every one of you to purchase a red letter Bible. The red letters being the very words of Jesus Christ. I challenge you to read the words of Jesus Christ daily. Study His words. Meditate on His words. But more than anything, live His words.
In Matthew 7 we read from Jesus, "Do not judge or you too will be judged. For the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."
How often throughout the day do we judge others? At church do we judge others? "If so and so was really faithful they would be at church." Do we sit in the judgement seat when it is not our place to do it? Why do we judge others? Has the church of Christ been guiltiy of this in the past? Is it something ofrom which we need to repent.
I pray that we will become less judgemental, understanding that God is our ultimate judge and let us strive to be the disciples he wants us to become.
