JUDGE NOT! (PART 1)

SEE JUDGE NOT INTRO FOR SCRIPTURE AND PREMISE!

As all of you know I am hardest on myself and other Christians when it comes to being responsible for mine and their actions. It is interesting to me that when people begin judging people for the life they are living and how they are living against the bible many times they are going against the bible as well. Everybody knows the old saying; two wrongs don’t make a right, and in this case doing the second wrong is making things worse. As Christians it is our job to recognize sin and to know how to avoid it but at the same time it is our job to spread the good news. We will never be able to spread the gospel if we are busy telling people how terrible they are, how wrong they are living, and why they are going to hell. It is not a Christian’s job to go to someone and tell them all the wrong they are doing, the job is to love them and tell them what they need to do to make it to heaven. Christ spent time with some of the worst people around during His time here on earth but, He spent His time showing them love and teaching them the good of a life with God. I recently preached on the thought that Christ told us in Matthew to go spread the gospel, and gospel was derived from a Greek word meaning good news. We need to spend more time telling people of Christ’s love and the joy of serving Him. We need to be sharing our testimony of how God has brought you through something, those things are good news. Spending time telling someone how bad they are, and that they are going to hell because of this that and the other, that is not the good news. The good news is Christ died for you and will walk with you through every portion of your life. I believe as a church if we would concentrate more on sharing the love of Christ and less time looking at what’s wrong with other people we would be reaching more of the world.
God Bless!!
Pray!

I can honestly say that I love this also. For a long time I didnt go to church because I have 3 kids out of wedlock and didn't want to be judged.
