Revelation #10: Not Guilty


The Judge's Verdict~

Guilty!

The judge is me

as

I put myself in the courtroom

and give myself

my own verdict~

Guilty

Unworthy!

And

then I read the words penned by Paul~

I care very little if I am judged by you or by any human court; indeed,

I do not even judge myself. I Corinthians 4:3

The same man who said~

Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance:

Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners~

of whom I am the worst. I Timothy 1:15

But doesn't it sound like he is judging himself?

And then I read

the very next sentence

that takes all judgment away~

But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners,

Christ Jesus might display His immense patience as an example for those who would believe in Him and receive eternal life. I Timothy 1:6

Judge not you

Judge not me

because

the Judge

is not me

and

the judge is not you.

It is the One

who throws down the gavel

pushing the nails into the

hands and the feet

of

His One and Only Son

and says

Not Guilty~

His Final Word.

But does that mean we were never guilty?

Oh no,

as Paul continues to tells us~

My conscience is clear, but that does not make me innocent.

It is the Lord who judges me. I Corinthians 4:4

Never innocent

or

Jesus wouldn't have had to take the judgement,

but

what remains is

having a clear conscience

that the only opinion

that matters is the

one

Judge

who

took away the guilty verdict,

once and for all,

and now that

allows me

and

allows you

to leave the courtroom

and leave the judging to

the One who has

released me

and

has released you

from

living from a position

of

guilt and shame

and

from

putting the verdict

of guilt and shame on anyone else.

Oh what a freeing

Revelation

of

Not guilty

is

when you know

the One who has the final Word.

Now that makes

every moment

a life changing moment

of every day

just because

God said so.

Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God,

be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

I Timothy 1:17

*How do you judge yourself?

*How do you allow the opinions of others "judge" you?

*How will you be different, if you lived each moment from a stance of

not guilty, and stopped judging yourself and judging others,

by only listening to the Words of the One & Only Judge?

Happy New Moment!

Revelation #10:

Not Guilty~
