Instead of Judging a Transgressor!
” Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.” James 5:20.
Hello, friend are you truly righteous? On what basis can you say you are walking towards perfection? Whichever is your answer, Judge not that ye not be judged. Let’s take a look at Rom 2:21-23, these series of questions were delivered to humble the arrogant Jews who boasted of their self-righteousness.
Paul’s questions were meant to manifest the hypocrisy and dishonesty of those Jews who were eager to condemn the gentiles. But at the same time, they were lawbreakers about the law by which they judged the gentiles. They were committing the same sins; they were judging the gentiles of sinning.
The event above is familiar to many Christians, and some have this ungodly belief that the early church held against the gentiles. The Jews were always claiming that they were the only ones entitled to God’s blessings, thereby condemning the gentiles, forgetting that they are now one in Christ.
The bible gives a clear warning about judging others that have a different belief from ours, in terms of religion, for example. Don’t forget you were sometimes darkness before the light of the glorious gospel of Christ shines in your heart. The preaching of the cross is foolishness to them that believed not, but have you ever tried to show such unbeliever the way, the truth, the life. Don’t forget, God saved you so that you can save others. Proverbs 11:30 says, ” The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and he who wins souls is wise.”
1. My father in heaven, thank you for your saving grace that brought back your life to me
2. I know you have saved me for others to be saved, give me the grace to fulfill the assignment in Jesus name. Amen!
