I know some of you are reading this simply because you want to know what I’m guilty of. Well, just like you I’m human. However, I don’t make excuses for my wrongdoings while screaming “Don’t judge me! Only God can judge me.” The truth of the matter is the people that harp on this stopped reading at Matthew 7:1 and don’t have an understanding of the things Jesus is saying in the chapter.
Nonetheless, I’m guilty! I owe a debt I cannot pay. I’ve thought some things I shouldn’t have, said and done some things. However, my heart’s desire is to please my Heavenly Father. So I make a conscience effort to live a life pleasing to Him and when I fall short – repent of that sin. Which means to turn away from it. Not do it over again as so many people do.
Not only am I guilty of being human and making mistakes; I’m guilty of not being bullied by the adversary of my soul and exposing him. So many people just go with the flow. So many are afraid to tell people the truth of God’s word and to get themselves together. I’m guilty of challenging people’s beliefs, challenging false doctrine and challenging people to think differently then they always have. Expanding your mind and understanding only helps you out in the long run.
I’m guilty of standing up for what I believe. Trusting in God and His word as the final authority. Lastly, I’m guilty for not following the crowd, what’s normal to some people and dancing to the beat of my own drum.
However, Jesus went to the cross for me and anything people want to accuse me of or anything wrong I’ve done His blood was shed and the final verdict was CASE DISMISSED!!!!
We serve a faithful and just God! So many times I’ve wondered and asked the question “Who wouldn’t want to serve a God like this?
