Wednesday April 8th, Acts 10: 42 He commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that he is the one whom God appointed as judge of the living and the dead. There are many who have forgotten this lesson but….. Christ is the one who judges.  Christ is the one who gave his life that we might have forgiveness of sins and life eternal.  We are the ones who want to judge.  We are the ones who want to call the shots of who is in and who is out.  Think about the things Christ, as judge, will be forgiving you for this day.  Don't just think of the surface sins in our lives.  We all like to play the “I just want everyone to love one another and all my sins to be forgiven” game.  Christ deals with specifics in our lives and calls us to love those we find unlovable in particular.   Generalities are all just part of human original sin, judging others with a different standard than we use to judge ourselves.  Once you have completed the humbling experience of honestly judging yourself, and honestly receiving forgiveness for your real sins, do your part.  Forgive someone else today in the name of Christ for specific transgressions.  Try it!!  Don't just say, "O that's OK, nothing to worry about."  Try saying, "I forgive you, and you are forgiven for……… in the name of Christ."  Watch the world change around and within you.
