Judge Yourself Rightly Part 1

But if we judged ourselves rightly, we would not be judged. 1 Corinthians 11:31 NASB

Judgment has always been deemed negative. Whenever it's mentioned, believers equate it to punishment. This mentality has been passed on through centuries and has always been taught in the church. But today, judgment will be viewed in a different light. We've been admonished to judge ourselves rightly, so that we would not be judged. What does this mean?

We might read this passage and think that it means to examine, i.e; we are to watch out for our wrong deeds and stop them, to prevent judgment. But, this scripture means something different. First of all, if we were to judge ourselves based on the Lord's standard, we'll be found wanting; " there is none that is good". Instead we are to judge our self differently, not based on what we've done, but based on what Jesus has done for us; this is good judgement.

Beloved, people might have written you off as good for nothing, that you would not amount to anything. The painful fact sometimes might be that your experience might concur to what has been said. But, if you can just look away from yourself and unto Jesus: see all that He has done on your behalf. Focus on how beautiful His ways are and on Him as your substitute. Hold on to this picture in your heart in belief and see your life transformed from one level of glory to another.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, all I see is You.
