Good day all! I hope this finds everyone doing well today. God has awaken me before the sun wakes up so for me that is pretty good. This is not to say that after I am done writing I won’t lay back down to rest, but who’s judging right? Speaking of judging that brings me to the blog topic for today – The real judicial system.
For many years in the United States we have had a system in place that is to protect and serve us……it is known as the judicial system. Now I know there are split views to this particular system in that some think our judicial system is worthless and others can’t say enough good about it. For me I don’t say because for me to say is judging them. Granted if something is done I don’t agree with I simply might say that, “I don’t agree with their judgment on that” or if they do something I agree to I will say that I agree to that, but I am not going to fully judge the judicial system on the job they are doing. You are probably wondering why. If your thoughts are judgmental when it comes to this system think about this…..we are told in the Bible that we are not to judge one another. Now granted the judicial system had to be put in place to give justice to those who had been wronged but think of this. The judicial system is not here to judge a person overall but they are here to judge those who have done wrong. When I think of the judicial system, I think of what Jesus talks about in the book of John chapter twelve. During this Chapter, Jesus is being anointed in Bethany and this is also the chapter of which He predicts His own death. The judicial system is here not to judge the individuals as a whole but the crime of which that person has done of which they are trying to help save society from this person’s continual criminal activity and try to help that person to turn their lives around. Jesus did then just as the judicial system today has done; for Jesus tells us in this chapter that:
47- “If anyone hears my words but does not keep them, I do not judge that person. For I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world.
48- There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; the very words I have spoken will condemn them at the last days…..
So here we see that Jesus clearly states that he is here not to judge but to help the world. The judicial system is here not to judge the people as people but for their crimes and try to help save them from that life of crime. Jesus also tells us that there is a judge who take care of those who have rejected him. When thinking about that and then the judicial system, God is also the judge on those whom the judicial system has judged the crime that had been committed…..just as He is the judge on each and every one of us. Let me just say I am glad a judicial system doesn’t judge us as over all people because I know I would be in a whole lot of trouble. I know God is the real judicial system and all I can say is this…. I know I have not been the perfect person or even the perfect Christian. To me there is only one perfect person and He died on the cross for all the bad things I have done. I am so thankful that Jesus is my lawyer before God for I know that the Real Judicial System….God …..Is not one I would want to stand in front of by myself. My question to you is this……is Jesus your lawyer or are you going to be standing before God alone? My suggestion to any and all is that if you don’t have Christ as your lawyer, then it would be the best investment that you could and will ever make. For when we do stand before God Jesus can represent you and showing where your name was written in the Lamb’s book of Life. If you are interested in that decision….please feel free to e-mail me at the e-mail below and I will talk with you more about getting Jesus as your lawyer.
Lord Willing and until tomorrow-
