Which is greater: their sin or our Savior?


Church Family,

I hope that you have a great day. We can’t wait to worship together with you this Sunday!

During my devotion time I was deeply convicted

Luke 7:39 Now when the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to himself, “If this man were a prophet, he would have known who and what sort of woman this is who is touching him, for she is a sinner.”

Is my/your spiritual gift seeing the sinfulness/wrong doing of others? Are we so offended by someone’s sin that we forget the purpose of the gospel?

Churches are known for doing great things, but we are also known for eating our own. When we see the weakness/sinfulness of others our reaction is to judge and distance ourselves. Throughout scripture God repeatedly demonstrates that He desires mercy not judgement. This doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t seek to be holy. It means that in our journey for holiness, we should desire to help others along the way.

How does judging others without offering mercy/grace hinder the gospel? Is our chief concern how sinful people are, how much money it will cost, how much damage can happen, OR is how great is our God to save, how great is our God to provide, and how powerful is our God to heal?
