1 Corinthians 4:3 -Whose to Judge?

Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today – so often I sit in judgment over self and others, when I have no capacity to do so.

1 Corinthians 4:3 NLT

[3] As for me, it matters very little how I might be evaluated by you or by any human authority. I don’t even trust my own judgment on this point.

John 17:22-23 – Be Right Or Be Love?

Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- we defend being right and defending our version of right, above love and unity, and then wonder why the world does not know Jesus.

John 17:22-23 NLT

[22] “I have given them the glory you gave me, so they may be one as we are one. [23] I am in them and you are in me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me.

Romans 14:12-13,17,23 – No More Condemning Others

Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- God brings to each of us the personal revelation of the truth of Kingdom life, religion dictates corporately what people think the truth for life is.

Romans 14:12-13,17,23 NLT

[12] Yes, each of us will give a personal account to God. [13] So let’s stop condemning each other. Decide instead to live in such a way that you will not cause another believer to stumble and fall. [17] For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of what we eat or drink, but of living a life of goodness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. [23] But if you have doubts about whether or not you should eat something, you are sinning if you go ahead and do it. For you are not following your convictions. If you do anything you believe is not right, you are sinning.

Romans 10:1-3 – The Deceived Way To Right Relationship.

Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- what is it in us as people that want to work our way to right relationship with God? What’s the attraction that makes us enthusiastically work hard for His acceptance?

Romans 10:1-3 NLT

[1] Dear brothers and sisters, the longing of my heart and my prayer to God is for the people of Israel to be saved. [2] I know what enthusiasm they have for God, but it is misdirected zeal. [3] For they don’t understand God’s way of making people right with himself. Refusing to accept God’s way, they cling to their own way of getting right with God by trying to keep the law.

Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- I am amazed again by how good God is to me.

1 Corinthians 1:30-31 NLT

[30] God has united you with Christ Jesus. For our benefit God made him to be wisdom itself. Christ made us right with God; he made us pure and holy, and he freed us from sin. [31] Therefore, as the Scriptures say, “If you want to boast, boast only about the LORD.”

Jude 1:22-23 – Placard or Posture

Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- I so often defend the truth with placard and condemnation in hand rather than posture myself with mercy and compassion.

Jude 1:22-23 TPT

[22] Keep being compassionate to those who still have doubts, [23] and snatch others out of the fire to save them. Be merciful over and over to them, but always couple your mercy with the fear of God. Be extremely careful to keep yourselves free from the pollutions of the flesh.

Luke 18:9-14 – Tax collectors go home right with God.

Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- it’s all grace and mercy, nothing of me.

Luke 18:9-14 TPT

[9] Jesus taught this parable to those who were convinced they were morally upright and those who trusted in their own virtue yet looked down on others with disgust: [10] “Once there were two men who went into the temple to pray. One was a proud religious leader, the other a despised tax collector. [11-12] The religious leader stood apart from the others and prayed, ‘How I thank you, O God, that I’m not wicked like everyone else. They’re cheaters, swindlers, and crooks like that tax collector over there. God, you know that I never cheat or commit adultery; I fast from food twice a week and I give you a tenth of all I make.’ [13] “The tax collector stood off alone in the corner, away from the Holy Place, and covered his face in his hands, feeling that he was unworthy to even look up to God. Beating his breast, he sobbed with brokenness and tears saying, ‘God, please, in your mercy and because of the blood sacrifice, forgive me, for I am nothing but the most miserable of all sinners!’ [14] “Which one of them left for home that day made right with God? It was the humble tax collector and not the religious leader! For everyone who praises himself will one day be humiliated before all, and everyone who humbles himself will one day be lifted up and honored before all.”

Romans 12:2 NLT

[2] Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

Romans 9:30-32 – Law condemns, Faith confirms

Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- I can easily fall for what ways of the world and miss the beauty of the ways of God.

Romans 9:30-32 NLT

[30] Even though the Gentiles were not trying to follow God’s standards, they were made right with God. And it was by faith that this took place. [31] But the people of Israel, who tried so hard to get right with God by keeping the law, never succeeded. [32] Why not? Because they were trying to get right with God by keeping the law instead of by trusting in him.

John 3:17-18 – No judgement – just rescue.

Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- no judgement means no judgement. How often I allow this truth to be corrupted.

John 1:10-12,18 – Risky God, known God.

Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- God takes the risk of rejection but makes himself plainly available to be known.

John 1:10-12,18 NLT

[10] He came into the very world he created, but the world didn’t recognize him. [11] He came to his own people, and even they rejected him. [12] But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God. [18] No one has ever seen God. But the unique One, who is himself God, is near to the Father’s heart. He has revealed God to us.

Romans 7:4-6 – Participatory experience is the way to life.

Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- no more law to follow, rather reflecting my experience of God is the way to Kingdom life.

Romans 7:4-6 NLT

[4] So, my dear brothers and sisters, this is the point: You died to the power of the law when you died with Christ. And now you are united with the one who was raised from the dead. As a result, we can produce a harvest of good deeds for God. [5] When we were controlled by our old nature, sinful desires were at work within us, and the law aroused these evil desires that produced a harvest of sinful deeds, resulting in death. [6] But now we have been released from the law, for we died to it and are no longer captive to its power. Now we can serve God, not in the old way of obeying the letter of the law, but in the new way of living in the Spirit.
