“But if a wicked man turns from all his sins which he has committed, keeps all My statutes, and does what is lawful and right, he shall surely live; he shall not die.”
Memory Verse: “For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you” Matthew 7:2.
Many Christians are saints in their own eyes. This is because we selectively absorb the bible and choose to sometimes only act on the part of the bible that seem continent for us. This is why people find it easy to condemn others both silently and openly.
There are things we may never have an understanding of, and while Jesus took time teaching us through His words, backed with visible evidences of His teachings in the bible, there are still some who lack understanding of His word.
Jesus enlightened us on some of the things the Pharisees misinterpreted in the laws of the Ten Commandments. The people were quick to accuse people of commuting murder, adultery and all those sin that we see as big sin. Jesus taught that anger is murder, 1John 3:15, lust is adultery, Matthew 5:27 and not trusting in the Lord is a sin that angers Him 2kings 17:14.
Jesus taught us that despite you thinking that you are perfect, unless the Lord opens your eyes to the knowledge of His words and gives you the grace to follow Him diligently, your lack of understanding may cause you to think you are better than the next person who you simply are like.
An angry man has so much in common with Cain that actually did the act of murdering his own brother; but when discussing this, it’s easy to judge Cain for his actions. The one who lust in his heart is exactly as the one who commits the act of adultery yet it’s easy to come out and speak about another.
God is more interested in mercy while human are more interested in Judging orders. Those who continually condemns others either in their heart or publicly are setting themselves up for a heartbreak because those who you judge may end up like Moses, Paul or David. They could be God’s finest while you have initiated a heavy judgment scale on yourself.
