It is only when we see that God has no expectations on us except that we are utter failures that the devil losses all power, God is Truly enthroned on the heart of our soul and we can at complete Peace!
Do others ideas and judgments cause you guilt?
Is it possible that the feelings you have inside is keeping you from a life abundant?
Are you still under the oppression of the old system?
Please read 1 Corinthians 4:1-5
If you are “in Christ” you hold a mystery inside and that mystery is talked about here.
What is the great mystery?
Vs.1 “This, then, is how you ought to regard us: as servants of Christ and as those entrusted with the mysteries God has revealed.”
The mystery is this- God so Loved you and me that He sent His only Son to die a horrible death for us and that death made us clean and pure and righteous as He is righteous. If God hasn’t revealed that to you please send me an email and I will tell you more.
How do we follow Vs. 2 and “prove faithful?”
Vs.2 “Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful.”
Simple- “Love one another”
Vs. 3 “I care very little if I am judged by you or by any human court; indeed, I do not even judge myself. My conscience is clear, but that does not make me innocent. It is the Lord who judges me.”
He cares very little what you think of Him and you should care very little what others think of you- Why?
Because once in Christ He is the only judge and that goes for us judging ourselves as well.
“GOD LOVES YOU”
And for you to not Love yourself means you are placing yourself before God. It also means that you are setting yourself up as a judge. Yes even if it is you judging yourself it is still someone (you) trying to play God which is dangerous on a good day and deadly every single day.
But before you start talking about or thinking about people that hurt you or loved ones in the name of God and believe me I could fill volumes if we go there. Remember doing that makes you a judge and that is a hard lesson to learn but it is tied into the forgiveness God wants us to have for each other.
Vs. 5 “He will bring to light what is hidden in the darkness and will expose the motives of people’s hearts.”
Don’t try, don’t even think of trying to do Gods job for Him- the lesson factor is more painful than you or I could even imagine.
