(KJV.) ROMANS 14:11-13
(11) For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
(12) So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
(13) Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumbling block or an occasion to fall in his brother's way.
THE LORD OUR STRENGTH
Brethren, this world is not our own, but belongs to our Father and his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; therefore, we are sojourners, regardless of national originations, colors, ethnicities, genders, human natures are basically the same; amazingly, everywhere we go on earth, though we may be out of our comfort zones, in different communities, states or abroad; many times, we find out that there are similarities in human behaviors; at times, we form opinions, criticize, label and condemn others for what we think they do out of norms, but ought not do or ought to do, but not doing, everywhere in this world, people find faults with others, criticize, condemn and assassinate characters; this is not new under the sun; with exceptions of revelations given through words of our Father, to rectify certain abnormal behaviors of humanity, when we take it upon ourselves to be critical, judgemental, condemning others, we place ourselves in the position of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, (John 5:22); do not get me wrong, we ought to correct one another, for no one knows all things of this world, we are all learners; if the need arises for us to correct one another, let us do so with wisdom, love and mindsets of benefits of doubts; for, the scriptures made clearly, that there is no one righteous on this earth, no not one. (Roman 3:10); for, all have sinned, come short of the glory of our Father. (Roman 23:23); through the disobedience of one man, sin came into this world, death came into the world because of sin, and men connected themselves to death, because we are all sinners; however, Jesus Christ came into the world, shed his blood, died on the cross, rose up again from the death to blot away the iniquities of this world; therefore, sin have no dominion over believers, because we are no longer under dictates of our schoolmaster, the law.
Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, is the only person that every knee should bow unto, every tongue confess their sins unto our Father; why?; because he is our advocate, through his shed blood, our past, present, future sins were forgiven entirely; therefore, before the judgment throne, each and everyone will give an account of himself to our Father, through Jesus Christ, on one on basis; on that day, our parents, siblings, friends and family members will not be present to advocate on our behalves, judgment is between humanity and Jesus Christ; therefore, let us not judge one another before appropriate times allocated for judgement; but find ways in which to encourage those who are going astray from Jesus Christ; with the scriptures, minister unto their hearts the truthfulness of matters, perhaps they will assimilate wisdom, turns around from falling into damnation, follow the Savior of the world; another aspect of encouraging others to turn away from awkwardness, it to love them for who we think they are, inspire them with rightful words, understand why people behave certain ways, intercede on their behalves for change of hearts, that the Holy Spirit will take absolute control of their issues, manifest his powers and transform lives in his righteousness into life everlasting.
Brethren, at times, when we point fingers of judgement against one another, we give room for the enemy to mock, laugh at us; why?; because, many times, we ourselves have sinned, from sunrises to sunsets, something that we do, may be offensive to the Holy Spirit, our guidance, ways in which we communicate about others, even when we get upset about secular or family affairs, what we eat or drink may contaminate or grieve the indwelling powers of the Holy Spirit; regardless of what we do, how we carry ourselves, by the end of day, the enemy will find loop holes to infiltrate minds with temptations of ungodliness; therefore, we are all sinners, let us not point accusing fingers at people who have fallen into sin, but encourage one another to walk in godliness, if they listen, we have gained a soul for Jesus Christ, if they refuse to pay attentions to our word of wisdom, we have done our parts; let us leave the rest in the hands of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, there is a day set aside for judgement; may we find grace in the eyes of Jesus Christ on that day, inherit eternal lives.
Dearly beloved, as believers, let us watch our footsteps, walk in ways pleasing to our Father, and Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, let our conversations be Christlike, resit temptations of the devil to deceive others, for fames, fortunes and derail ourselves in his righteousness; think wisely of our actions before we act upon them; pray for one another in the faith of his righteousness forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!
