Mercy!

I’m kind of a hard-nosed guy when it comes to seeing things in black and white.  I don’t have any tolerance for things I feel are dishonest or against what I believe are God’s standards. While that may be fine at times (like lovingly helping people see the truth), judgment is really not my job. Judgment is God’s job 100% of the time.  I find it ironic and profound God had every reason to judge us harshly, and yet found it in His heart to give us mercy, while we who have no reason to judge, quite often do it anyway, and yet find it difficult to show mercy to others.  The truth is we need to always be aware we have been saved by grace and are no longer under the law, but in many ways we need to live like we still will be judged by it. The fact remains we are still sinners. Whenever we are standing in judgment of someone else, we are sinners sitting in God’s chair. A good remembrance of the law will help keep us out of HIS chair!  “Speak and act as those who are going to be judged by the law that gives freedom, because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment!” James 2:12-13  In Christ, PastorJimKilby @Kilbin8er Jim@JamesKilby.com
