Salvation, Our Legal Defense Against Judgement.
John 12:47 (NIV)
“If anyone hears my words but does not keep them, I do not judge that person. For I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world.
Jesus was many things and could have become anything if he wanted. He has said he didn’t come to Judge you but is looking to save us all into his marvelous kingdom. Can you imagine what it would have been like judging and saving us at the same time? How judgmental are we towards those who we claim are sinful and those not Christians? How much forgiveness do we emit towards those who have offended us? If Jesus with all the power will not judge us then maybe the seat of judgement isn’t yours either. Love always.
Father forgive me for those times I have sat in the seat of the scornful and judged others. Let your love fill my heart so I will learn to go out without prejudice and declare your word as you have spoken. In Jesus’ name.
