No one is better than another!!
Speak to one another in love. As we once were all doing sins even if we have stopped; speak love. Because its love that GOD showed you that made you quietly see all you did, be able to repent quietly out of guilt, see another day, and change your ways. GOD could expose all of us, and let's remember that the wages of sin is death. But HE gives us another day. May we be as loving towards others.
Please pray the LORD's PRAYER and please read:
1 Since you have been raised up to be with Christ, you must look for the things that are above, where Christ is, sitting at God's right hand.
2 Let your thoughts be on things above, not on the things that are on the earth,
3 because you have died, and now the life you have is hidden with Christ in God.
4 But when Christ is revealed -- and he is your life-you, too, will be revealed with him in glory.
5 That is why you must kill everything in you that is earthly: sexual vice, impurity, uncontrolled passion, evil desires and especially greed, which is the same thing as worshipping a false god;
6 it is precisely these things which draw God's retribution upon those who resist.
7 And these things made up your way of life when you were living among such people,
8 but now you also must give up all these things: human anger, hot temper, malice, abusive language and dirty talk;
9 and do not lie to each other. You have stripped off your old behaviour with your old self,
10 and you have put on a new self which will progress towards true knowledge the more it is renewed in the image of its Creator;
11 and in that image there is no room for distinction between Greek and Jew, between the circumcised and uncircumcised, or between barbarian and Scythian, slave and free. There is only Christ: he is everything and he is in everything.
12 As the chosen of God, then, the holy people whom he loves, you are to be clothed in heartfelt compassion, in generosity and humility, gentleness and patience.
13 Bear with one another; forgive each other if one of you has a complaint against another. The Lord has forgiven you; now you must do the same.
14 Over all these clothes, put on love, the perfect bond.
15 And may the peace of Christ reign in your hearts, because it is for this that you were called together in one body. Always be thankful.
16 Let the Word of Christ, in all its richness, find a home with you. Teach each other, and advise each other, in all wisdom. With gratitude in your hearts sing psalms and hymns and inspired songs to God;
17 and whatever you say or do, let it be in the name of the Lord Jesus, in thanksgiving to God the Father through him.
GOD BLESS US ALL,
It is a choice, obedience ... or rebellion ... Choose.
Blessings or wrath. We have a forgiving Savior ... when our intentions are pure. Forgive us Father, we know not what we do. God is not mocked. Praise the LORD!
It is true that in terms of salvation, no one is better than another.
However, in terms of people being obedient to God’s will, some are far, far more obedient, thereby doing more good, than others. Not that the good things done, counts towards “saving” themselves, but it’s the good God wants them to do.
It is also true to say that we all are innately sinful, some are far, far worse and far, far more evil than others in their actions.
And it is perfectly fine to stand up against evil. And evil people.
I am not going to speak in love to the guy who kicks in my door at 2am armed with a gun.
Lol!! Yet funny enough that in quite sure in faith that if the guy with the gun was your child I’m sure you would speak lovingly as Jesus ordered; as would most people. Only because people would realize something was wrong with their child who they love so much
Yet we fail to realize that JESUS CHRIST, who loved us all ( this is true love), this is love that knows that everyone is someone else’s child, future mother/father, or loved one.
Sin is sin, many give themselves some sort of grandeur ( which is sin) and try to protect their life because they only truly believe in this life. Yet Jesus constantly told us to be focused on heaven not on things here. Focusing on here is why we sin and sin causes death:
33Whoever tries to keep his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it.
Who Jesus came for:
31Jesus answered them, It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. 32I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
What Jesus issued us to follow as the greatest commandments:
29The most important one, answered Jesus, is this: Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one.e
30Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.f
31The second is this: Love your neighbor as yourself.g There is no commandment greater than these.
Love to all in the holy precious name of Jesus Christ who lived and reigns forever and ever!! Amen!!
GOD BLESS US ALL,
Yet be careful when we say we all have choice.
All read the book of JONAH over and over again. And there are other examples.
Love to all in the holy precious name of Jesus Christ who lives and reigns forever and ever! Amen!
GOD BLESS US ALL,
