I have some good news from God’s word – Jesus did not come to condemn you!
Isn’t that great!!!
His exact words were –
For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. John 3:17
He is not here to condemn you!
He has come to save you!
I have discovered that many Christians want to condemn others. I have been guilty of that too.
But we are not here to condemn, anymore than Jesus came to condemn.
So why are Christians so prone to point out sin? I think it’s an attempt to salvation – the compelling nature to point out sin and to tell others they are condemned without Jesus.
That is also true!
He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. John 3:18
What Jesus is saying is preach Jesus! That may sound a little self-fulfilling but He is the Messiah and Savior.
Paul said it best when he said,
And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. 1 Cor 2:1-2
Preach and teach God’s word and let the Holy Spirit use it to convict the hearer!
Abba, Your word is more powerful than my own. I debate whereas You end all debates. Your word is perfect and condemns and gives life through Jesus. YES&AMEN
