“I have come as Light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me will not remain in darkness. If anyone hears My sayings and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world. He who rejects Me and does not receive My sayings, has one who judges him; the word I spoke is what will judge him at the last day.” (John 12:46–48, NASB95)
“Do not judge so that you will not be judged. For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you. Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ and behold, the log is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.” (Matthew 7:1–5, NASB95)
Too many have taken it upon themselves to proclaim My judgment. I came not to judge the world but to save the world. I came to set the captives free; to open the prison doors of the past through the cleansing, healing stream of My Light – shining in the darkness. And the darkness of the world has never been able to overcome it. Judge not, pray much. Be My vessel for Light to flow into the darkness. Be a candle set on fire with My Love to light the Way to those in darkness.
