STOP JUDGING PEOPLE BASED ON THEIR PAST!

There is always an ugly story that we are all ashamed of telling the world. It has to do with our PAST,  the careless,  sinful and selfish way we lived our lives without  God.  God in His Mercy got a hold of us in our sinfulness and showered his unconditional love to us,  which gave us the ticket to live life to its fullness with Christ in God.
As we come to the body of Christ we will want to share our past life experience with others so they can experience the love, mercy, faithfulness and Grace of God.  After sharing these experiences with fellow believers,  it is pathetic to see how they go about nailing you back to the cross.  They begin to segregate and be more watchful of you in Church.  Especially when you have had a bad immoral and financial past,  the camera of the fellowship is on you...

Let us stop condemning and destroying the image of others.  They are very important to God as you are.  Through this act many babes in Christ have gone back to their sinful life style, many who could not stand the pressure have stopped going to Church. Everyone had a Past in Sin,  a Present in  God's Grace and a Future in  God's Grace.
Who gave you the right to judge others? Okay,  you think you are Mr/Mrs perfect? Do you know how useless you are without God? You are saved by Grace and kept my God's Mercy.  You are Righteous not based on works but based on Grace.
Don't forget Jesus words in Matthew 7:3-5 " 3 Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.”
Jesus Christ met a woman who was a prostitute and cast out seven demons from her.  He brought the gospel of love to her,  this made her His disciple. He did not judge her. The woman caught in the act of Adultery, Jesus did not criticize her.  He did not throw stone at her as her  accusers wanted to.  He expressed love to that wary soul,  saying to her " go and sin no more " .
Friend,  the house of God is not for perfect saints,  it is for perfecting the saints.  It is a refinery,  where God is the refiner.  Allow the refiner do His job in the lives of others.  The only thing we owe anyone is to love them and this is done by praying for them and encouraging them in the faith. You can judge an action with God's word in love,  to correct the person and establish them on the path of the Kingdom life style,  but don't judge his/her person.  The person is going through a lot already and needs a shoulder to lean on...
To all who have been hurt by this evil Judgemental spirit, on behalf of those that have hurt you and hindered your walk with God.  I am very sorry, please forgive them,  they acted in ignorance.

You are not condemned but loved by ABBA FATHER.
friends, Don't judge,  Do love...
Do have a Blessed Sunday.
WORD FOR THE DAY
"Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you". Matthew 7:1-2.
