In a World That Judges...

"God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him." John 3:17

One of the many things I love about my Lord and Savior is that he is a loving Father. I can picture him holding me close as we walk side by side. There is more than just one story in the Bible that paints the picture of a lost child coming home to the open arms of Abba Father- and you know what's so amazing about those loving arms? They don't condemn.

One thing I've been learning recently is that I need to be pursuing the qualities of Jesus everyday. I shouldn't be choosing which ones are the easiest to follow but working towards attaining the hardest. For some people, acceptance of anyone and everyone comes easy for them, and I admire that. I believe that sometime we get a little too high on the pedestal of life and forget to check our attitudes and actions.

We have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God- every one of us- but you know what's amazing?
"Instead, immense in mercy and with an incredible love, he embraced us...he did it on his own, with no help from us!" Ephesians 2: 4-5

If God can do that and we call ourselves "Christ followers", than we should walk in that way also.


  1. Wow. You should be an inspirational writer... because that's great... and so true too! Especially the last quote there (it's usually the last one ha) about that if we call ourselves "Christ followers," than we should walk in that way and not just say it! That is such a huge epidemic among America right now!

    Thanks for writing Myah. God bless
