Rom 2:13, for not the hearers of the law are just before God but the doers of the law shall be justified


1. Are you worried about other people and their sins? Psalms 1:1, blessed is the man that walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the way of sinners not sits in the seat of the scornful. Are you trying to stop other people from sinning? We are told we are blessed if we do not stand in the way of sinners. You can give them God’s word but we cannot prevent them from sinning.


2. Are you listening to gossips fill you in about the horrible things they have done? 1 Tim 5:13, …and withal they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house, and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not. These people that are always sharing the news of what is going on are doing nothing but sinning against God and spreading news that they ought not.


3. Are you always in a state of chaos and having to quarrel, fight, and struggle for peace and spiritual safety between them and you? Col 3:13, …forbearing one another and forgiving one another if any man has a quarrel against any, even as Christ forgave so also do you. Did Jesus say forgive them they know not what they are doing on the cross? 1 Pet 4:15, but let none of you suffer as a murderer or as a thief or as an evildoer or as a busybody in other men’s matters.


4. Are you involved in other people’s affairs? If so then stop and mind your own business. Get your own house in order and fear God. Jesus said, And why do you behold the mote that is in your brother’s eye but do not consider the beam that is in your own eye? Or how will you say to your brother, let me pull out the mote out of your eye and behold a beam is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of your own eye and then you shall see clearly how to cast the mote out of your brother’s eye Matt 7:3-5.


5. Are you trying to punish the evildoer? Rom 12:9, dearly beloved avenge not yourselves but rather give place unto wrath for it is written, vengeance is mine I will repay says the Lord. We are to pray for our enemies and overcome evil with good, not render unto them punishment. Did Jesus die for the wicked that believe or just the righteous that believe?


6. Are you trying to convert the same people over and over and they will not respond to the words of God? Jesus says, Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet and turn again and rend you Matt 7:6. Jesus said in John 8:44, there is no truth in the devil some people would rather believe the ways of this world than to bring their sins to the light of the cross of Christ through repentance and obedience to God.


Rom 2:7-10, to them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honor and immortality: eternal life, but unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, tribulation and anguish upon every soul of man that does evil of the Jew first and also of the gentile but glory honor and peace to every man that works good to the Jew first and also of the Gentiles


Father help us get our houses in order and meet our souls deepest needs, heal our souls wounds and may we prosper and be in health as our souls prospers, in Jesus of Nazareth’s name amen.
