ON JUDGING CHRISTIANS

 I used to do it too, see a "so-called Christian" rant, and rave in traffic, or go off on a cashier and threaten to "put the Holy Ghost on a shelf and climb across the counter and...💥 ..."  I said, "she's not saved nor has the Holy Ghost"...The Lord reminded me of how many times Israel went back, complained, served idols, committed other sins and the Lord says  He is "married to the backslider", and how He will never give up on His people, He wooed Israel back, sometimes with chastisement and other times with a proverbial kiss.  The Lord expects us to have the same mercy and grace with His people as He has. 

It appears to me as we are uncut diamonds in the beginning, and may slip out of his hands (will) He being the Stone-Cutter, He's making us, it may not feel good at times when He's cutting us into the shape He wants us to be. He keeps picking us up and cutting again, as many times as we keep getting away. He's the author and finisher of Our Faith, He never fails, He will always get what He said.  Soon we begin to take shape, we comply, we let Him finish the work He began in us, we've learned, We stay in His hand, We can only fall out of His hand for so long before our time is up, and we see the years pass us by quickly and so we stand still and He completes us, and polishes us, and then We sparkle and are an example to others about to go through a similar process.

Let's pray for one another, have patience with each other, Jesus never writes us off till the day of redemption once we refused to return to Him, and those who've kept the faith receive the reward. I sometimes may dress someone (in my mind) before the Lord has ever had a chance to first cleanse them (save and baptize them)  Respectful dress being a near obsession of mine (anti-leggings or anti-bikini on a public beach etc. but I'm still learning too, we exchange each other's strengths and help each other's weaknesses.

The unfinished Christian is still a Child of God, but oh the risk of staying out of His hand when we don't know these days if that Sweet Chariot will Swing Low for us today or tonight and we are out of time and still out of His will.  We only have so long in these bodies, only one chance to let God have His way before it's too late. Love One Another, have Patience with each other, Pray for one another, we are All a Precious Stone in The Lord's hand.
