Judgment. What does this mean? The encyclopedia definition is, The process of forming an opinion by discerning and comparing. The bible says, Judge not, lest you be judged.  How many times as Christians, do we do this?  Are we not to judge the sinners?  No, that is not our responsibility. Remember, what Jesus said, " I have not come to judge, but to save those that are lost". Jesus, the great I AM, did not come here to judge us by what we looked like. He, came here to save us from sin. So how, if the great I AM accepts us, can we not do the same for others?

We judge people everyday by what they look like, how they act, and how we perceive them. We do this, not out of love, but out of fear and to feel superior to them. This is not the way to show love or acceptance. God commands us to Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. He did not say to preach only to those that look right, or to those we find appealing. Too many times, we decide someone’s worth by how we perceive them, not by how God views that person. Why do we shun some people, but talk to others? Why do we only talk to people who are already saved, and not to those who need to hear the good word? It is easier to ‘judge’ a person than it is to talk to them. Maybe, if we as Christians talked to people more often, we could help them receive salvation through Christ Jesus.

That, my friends, is the purpose of Gods people.. to help those that are lost. Are we wrong in telling people that they are living in sin?  No, I do not think so. It is our obligation to help lead them to Jesus Christ. Can we do this as a church body without judgment? Yes, by talking to people about the saving grace of Jesus Christ. By telling them what it is to accept Jesus as their Lord and personal Savior. If we did this more often instead of judging, how many more souls would we save? How many people in this ignorant and evil world, would feel accepted, and not rejected. So, I call to you for help, to remember that we have all been judged by God, and found guilty of sin…that all of us at some time in our lives, have felt rejected and lost. If it had not been for someone showing us or helping us, we would not know the saving power of grace.

John 5:22,23  For the Father judges no one, but has committed all judgments to the Son, that all should honor the Son just as they honor the Father. Amen

Minister for Jesus
