\"Judge not lest ye be judged\" is a big deal and is quoted in the Bible. The Father of course did not promote this verse to mean we should overly use it to promote sinful lifestyles or casual use and abuse of His Word, the Bible. I have noticed many Calvinists over use this verse and the word grace to promote their lustful behaviors. Many business owners in my town know and use these words more than a preacher on Sunday morning.

The Apostle Paul shares with the reader Romans 6:1 and also chapter 7, which comes as a form of a question in 6:1, \"Do we continue in sin that grace may abound?\" So in fact here, the apostle is pointing out that grace is in itself God's goodness towards us. We should love Father enough that we do not want to sin willfully. He died for us. We do live in the flesh and will fail at times. If we love Jesus and continue to treat Him as more than some object or just another Sunday we fail to really learn the point these two verses really are telling us.

Why sin? The devil and the flesh are weak. With all things Christ makes possible! We should be using the New testament for today. So many are focused on the yesterday and the Bible becomes just a thing to pick up and hold in our hands and nothing more.

We have so much to be thankful for. Heck with Christmas and Easter. I want Jesus Christ! I want Jesus more than anything! That is the attitude we should all have. I want Christ more than money, more than a job, more than my government benefits, more than jail, more than food stamps, more than this life can offer. That is the attitude Christ wants us to have! Amen!?

Pray and ask Christ into your heart today.

The example prayer is: (mean it from your heart)


I have failed. I am a sinner. I need repentance. I need you more than anything and anyone. Please come into my life. help me to change. In Jesus name, I pray, Amen.

That's it. Now follow Christ by reading the New Testament. Starting with the book of John is a good start.

Bless you friend.
