For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
What a great reminder for those who are Christians. If Jesus wasn’t sent to “judge”, who are we to even have a little judgmental thought? As Christ followers, we are called to be like Christ. His whole purpose on Earth was to show God’s light to the world.
To live in the light is to live in love, judgement free. No matter who someone is or what they’ve done, we are called to love them. It’s easy to love someone who loves you back, but that’s not what sets us apart. We are called to love all people, even those who hurt us. (Matthew 5:43-48)
The greatest way to point people to Jesus is to love them. We aren’t the judge, our Father in Heaven is. We have to take every judgmental thought captive and give it to Him. Our main purpose on Earth is to live like Jesus.
Today, let’s be determined to live in the judgment free zone. Loving everyone, no strings attached.
