“When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.”
John 8:10-11 KJV
Now, I know what you’re thinking.. okay maybe I don’t, but I guarantee that when you read this familiar passage it took your mind to a time or 2, or 3 or more when you stood in judgement at the hands of another and/or you too have judged someone in a condemning manner. Just know, that JESUS said that on whatever end of the spectrum you may find yourself.. passing judgment on another is plain wrong. There isn’t a person alive that can condemn you for anything that you’ve said, done, how you’ve acted or reacted!!!
“So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.”
John 8:7 KJV
Marshand, are you now condoning sin?!!! Does it sound like it? Then no, the truth is the truth.. whether it was when JESUS walked among us —
“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”
John 1:14 KJV
— or now in this present day. JESUS’ judgement only being the measuring stick for us all, we are assured that He will handle all matters for us —
“Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.”
Romans 12:19 KJV
—and that actually, we should study to mind our own business in like manner.
“and that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you;”
1 Thessalonians 4:11 KJV
Ouch!!! Let’s dive all the way in!!!
Romans 8:1 / Romans 4:13-15 / Romans 3:5-10 and 19-28
Final Thought: Now let me clarify something, knowing that we are “..free in CHRIST JESUS…” (John 8:36) is not an open ticket to use our knowledge of that fact through the promise, by misusing that freedom under a disguise by judging others either openly, secretly or subliminally. (1 Peter 2:15-16) There is no human being who can put you in hell, just the same as there is no human being that can preach you into Heaven. The facts of the matter, are that the only One we are to concern ourselves with lining up with is GOD Himself, His Word, His Will, His Way.. just as the only One we should have any fear of is GOD Himself who we will all stand in judgment by on the day of JESUS CHRIST’s return.
“But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.”
Luke 12:5 KJV
