Today's Mathew 7 from our Spoken Word Bible Reading Plan addresses just as clearly as is possible what the Lord our God thinks about all of the biting, devouring, criticizing and condemning that is going on WITHIN THE CHURCH! Verses 1-5:
DO NOT!!! JESUS could not have made that any clearer! DO NOT JUDGE!! There is ONE Judge Who judges all and it is NOT YOU! Or ME! WE are called to love each other, pray for each other. encourage each other, exhort each other unto good works! We are NOT to hold ourselves above others and recount all of their faults and failures! THIS is the only instruction that we have concerning this! Galatians 6:1:
Brethren, if any person is overtaken in misconduct or sin of any sort, you who are spiritual [who are responsive to and controlled by the Spirit] should set him right and restore and reinstate him, without any sense of superiority and with all gentleness, keeping an attentive eye on yourself, lest you should be tempted also.
The first sign that YOU are not the 'spiritual one' this is referring to? The 'spiritual one' will NOT WANT to go! They WILL go, in obedience to the LORD JESUS, but they will take no delight in doing so! Let's just get back to the LOVE message and major on that one! After all, 1 Corinthians 13:8 tells us all that LOVE NEVER FAILS!!! AMEN! Here is Hillsong Young and Free with "Let Go":
Shalom in Him!
