Examine Yourselves...... to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves..... Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you unless of course, you fail the test? 2 Cor 13:5 It is really our job to examine others ? inspect, to determine their nature or condition. Is it our Job to take the speck out of our brothers eye. Can we Judge by mere appearance. Is it not the Holy Spirits job to convict us in regard to sin and righteousness and judgement will he not guide us into all truth. Will he not expose sin in order to awaken our conscious of guilt and need for forgiveness. The Holy Spirit makes us aware of God's standard of righteousness in Christ he show us our sin and gives us power to overcome. Remember we will all stand before the judgement seat of God, everything will be uncover and give an account. I'm not saying there is times to speak up but it should be done with the Love of God being poured into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, spoken with Wisdom that comes from heaven pure, peace-loving considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit impartial and sincere. James 3:17-18 Roman 5:5
Jesus says you can only take the speck out of your brother's eye once you have removed the log from your own. Not until then.
I needed to hear that. Thank you.
