Grace · Judgment

freedom… from judgment…

On the morning of jury duty…
I open my prayer guide…
where I read…

Honor God, praise Him as Judge…
Will not the Judge of all the earth do right?
Genesis 18:25
He is the Judge of all creation…
the only Judge who judges perfectly…
Only He sees… knows… all the evidence…
the motive of every heart… behind every action…
He knows the rule of law perfectly…
because He defined the law…
With God… Truth always rules…
He cannot be swayed… manipulated… deceived…
He is the Judge of all the earth…
Because He judges rightly…
and brings all things into judgment…
I do not have to judge…
Vengeance belongs to Him…
Grace belongs to Him…
Forgiveness belongs to Him…
And praise God for His judgment…
and praise Him for His Son…
who came to receive judgment…
for those who trust Him… 
By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh
and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh,
in order that the righteous requirement of the law
might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh
but according to the Spirit.
Romans 8:3-4 ESV
Because of Jesus…
and the blessing of faith…
I am judged righteous…
He is my righteousness…
Today I see… freedom… from judgment…
both passing judgment on others…
and receiving it from Him…
Freedom from judgment…
makes room for us to walk in grace…
This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ
to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned
and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace
through the redemption that came by Jesus Christ.
Romans 3:22-24
Are you free from judgment…?
