You are not subject to any man’s judgement!

One of the hardest things about life is realising the number of times we are evaluated. From the time we are born and the doctor scores us on the Apgar scale of 0-10, ti the time we graduate with a file cabinet full of papers with grades on them and all through our lives, people judge us and tell us what they think of us. But God says that as a believer you are not subject to a person’s judgement. Why? Part of the reason is that most of the people who are trying to judge you will be attempting to evaluate you without the help of a renewed mind.

When you become a Christian, you are given a new mind which changes how you see the word around you and the people in it. That new mind has been rescued from spiritual darkness, and the lies that world suffers from no longer have the power to fool you. So when you do something according it makes no sense to those who do not have your new mind. They can’t judge you because they have blurred vision from the spiritual darkness that holds them captive.

Also you have someone living inside you to coach you so that your judgement is truer than it was before you met Jesus. That someone is the Holy Spirit.So you may see what is truly happening in the world and in your life, but others who do not have the help of God cannot understand what they see. Their judgement is faulty.

Knowing that God doesn’t think you may need to worry about their opinion should help you to let yourself off the hook when are criticised for doing what is right. God understands the thinking handicap they suffer from. And it also means that you can understand and love them, even while they are hostile. You know that they need help – Jesus’ help.

So next time sometimes judges you, remember – you are not subject to their judgement, and you can love them and pray for them because they can’t help being wrong right now.

The spiritual man makes judgements about all things, but he is not subject to any man’s judgement. 1 Corinthians 2:15

On What Will You be Judged?

Have you ever thought about the judgment day when the son of Man will judge the nations?

Many say that the end times are upon us. The signs and wonders have begun. Are you are at a place in your life where you can say that you will reign in heaven when that day comes?

Today’s Bible Minute from Woodrow Kroll focuses on the basis on which we are judged by Jesus. According to Kroll “He (Jesus) will judge us according to our ability, the proportion of our ability.” Obviously, if we are not capable of doing something Jesus will not base His judgment on this because Jesus is faithful and just.

Maybe it is time to examine yourself, analyse your qualities, gifts, and strengths in order determine the area(s) in your life through which you can make a greater contribution to the glory of the God and satisfy Him.

According to Ability

Tami Weissert: Jesus only judges you on what you’re able to do. With today’s Bible Minute, here’s Woodrow Kroll.

Woodrow Kroll: You may not have the ability to sing a song. You may not have the ability to open the Bible and teach a Bible-study group. He doesn’t judge you on that ability. He judges you on the abilities that you do have. He will judge us according to our ability, the proportion of our ability.

There’s a great story in Matthew 25. And this is a parable about the various abilities that servants had that were given to them by their own master. The people to whom he gave the least ability, he also gave the least responsibility. However, if you do have a lot of ability, you can anticipate that the Lord Jesus wants to use that ability, and with ability will come responsibility.
Tami Weissert: This is an important issue. For more direction, try today’s study at bibleminute.org.
