In Matthew 7:1-2, Jesus says “ Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judge: and with what measured ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.”
This is a Jesus telling you and I not to JUDGE, and if we do then the same judgment will be upon us. There is not one Christian man or women, young or old, who is not guilty of this verse. Some do it more than others but in the eyes of God it’s still judging.
How dare we do such a thing when we have issues and shortcomings like the person we are judging. If you don’t know all of the story about the person and why he or she acts the way they do, or is doing what they are doing ,then keep your mouth closed.
So many Christian are doing this, judging without knowing all of the facts. Jesus, who is the son of the living God, who is the only way to heaven, is not even judging people until his second coming. Again I say to all who are reading this “how dare we judge someone?” If it wasn’t for the Lord being on our side, we would not even be here today to tell about it. Don’t forget where the Lord has taken you from, it does not matter if you have the title of a pastor, bishop, deacon, prayer warrior, usher, greeter, choir member, youth pastor, the kitchen committee, or just a member, you are still held by God accountable to this verse not to judge. God does not care about the titles that you process, but it’s about being obedient to his word.
You are not above this verse preachers, deacons, choir members, ushers, so don’t forget this; because how you judge others will be how you are judged.
The same mercy and grace that saved you, why can’t it do the same for someone else? Jesus didn’t just die and rise from the grave for you; he died and rose for that person who you have judged as well.
Can the blood of Jesus be extended to someone other than you? Some Christians are too self-righteous, too holy, too anointed, too spiritual to see any good in people anymore. They are just like the Pharisees and scribes in the days that Jesus walked this earth.
Stop judging people by what you heard; again you don’t know what God is doing in their lives nor do you know their whole story. Keep your mouth closed if you don’t know all the facts, and pray for them. If God did not give up on you, and forgave you and me of our mess, then why can’t he do the same for that person you are judging?
To every Christian man and woman who is reading this article, it’s time to stop judging people without out all the fact,s and even when you know all the facts don’t cast them away because God can still turn a mess into a miracle, just look at yourself.
