Jesus new, Jesus Knew – 2Judge who?

To say that the concepts of The Messiah and God that Jesus shared were new is much like saying an entire elephant would be difficult to digest for dinner this evening. 

“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” – Matthew 7:1-2 

“What do you mean do not judge? That is what the entire law does!” Yes it is and it’s Exactly what Jesus never did and it’s one of the main reasons why many will Never come near a religious establishment bearing His name, all they get there is judgement!

“But we should use discernment.” Not on Loving people! Use discernment on any person calling themselves a preacher who focuses on Anything other than Love because God Is Love!

The words above are from the lips of Christ Himself and are meant to be a focal point of those Jews who would leave the appearance based legalistic structure behind and follow this crazy Carpenter who wandered the desert.

How are we to live then? What can be said of the true followers of Christ? Are we to wash the inside of the cup by Faith alone and stop looking at the appearance of the outside?
What Christ Knew is this – No one is any better than anyone else – ALL Righteousness comes “By Grace, through Faith” and No one is made righteous by Any other means or any other name under Heaven because the cross “Finished” All our need for connectivity with God – just Believe!
