Be A Saviour Not A Judge.

Be a saviour not a judge The enemy has from the beginning been a deceiver. He is working hard, especially this end times to set believers against each other and disunite the Church of Christ. Unfortunately believers are mostly succumbing to his trickery.

A believer makes a mistake and other believers raise their voices to run him down. They log on to social media, go on TV, radio and other public platforms to further tear their brother down instead of taking time to talk with the fallen brother or lift him up in prayers.
I don’t believe God wants this for His children. Family is meant for support, all of God’s children are supposed to stand up for each other and not join the world to stomp on the one who stumbled or fell.

Don’t Get Me Wrong.                                                                                                         Please note that I did not say we should condone sin in the family, neither do I mean that we shouldn’t confront sin.

What I am trying to point out here is that we should cease from the public battering of brethren.
Often times we have even judged wrongly and put ourselves against God.

[Tweet “Enter your tweetsOnly people without sin, only those without fault are qualified to throw stones.”]

…”Anyone here who has never sinned can throw the first stone at her.”
John 8:7 NCV.

Let us leave judgement for The Judge.                                                                                    The government is upon His shoulders not ours.
See Isaiah 9:6

When we go public with our sledgehammers on our christian brothers and sisters we bring pleasure to the enemy and weaken the Church instead of strengthening her. We show the world and the kingdom of darkness that we are not United and we all know that…

….”Any kingdom divided by civil war is doomed. A family splintered by feuding will fall apart. Luke 11:17 NLT

Let us learn to go against every wish of the devil, let us resist his pull to judge one another, we are not masters to our brethren, we should be our brothers’ keepers instead.

Who art thou that judgest another man’s servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand.
Romans 14:4

What should we do?                                                                                                                         If a brother goes wrong we should pray for him and also seek to let him know that we are for and with him not against him. We should talk to him about it in love seeking to help him up.

When we stomp on another in criticism, judgement and condemnation, we seek to keep them down rather than help them up.
Love, even the toughest love does not work that way. See 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

We must remember that the enemy only seeks one thing, to put the church in discord, to weaken and disunite her because he knows what absolute unity of the Church can do to His kingdom.

But God seeks one thing for us, unity. This is the only way the world will recognize the Church of Christ. Jesus’ prayer for the Church just before He ascended was…

…that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me. John 17:23 (ESV)

Our Calling.                                                                                                                                     We are called to help each other, to be a saviour to each other not a judge. We are called to help our brothers up not stomp on them when they fall.

Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins. James 5:20

Do you think public bashing is helping the Church?

Are you stomping on your brother or helping him up?
