God Knows The Hypocrites

I do not consider that it is my place as a Christian to stand around making judgments and calling other people “hypocrites.” Our Lord Jesus Christ is the only man I know who was holy and perfect enough to call the religious leaders of the day hypocrites. I am just a man with faults and shortcomings of my own, and I must always consider myself lest I be tempted! I preach to my own congregation about our faults and our failings, with the warning that some of our professions of blessing and victory may get into the area of “unintentional hypocrisy.” Through the grace of God and the kindness of our spiritual ancestors, we may have spiritual light that some others do not have. But in all honesty, we are wretchedly far below what we should be in living up to it day by day. It helps us to be honest, frank, and humble to know that the great God Almighty knows the secrets of every person’s heart!

Verse

Let us therefore not judge one another anymore. Romans 14:13

Thought

Our Lord Jesus Christ is the only man I know who was holy and perfect enough to call the religious leaders of the day hypocrites.

Prayer

Lord, You are the Judge; You have things under control. Remind me not to take on responsibilities that are not mine. Keep my eyes on You, and make my own way straight.

“What I believe about God is the most important thing about me.”
