Don’t Judge By Mere Appearances

Hi, God’s word for me today is in John 7:23-24 which says,

23 Now if a boy can be circumcised on the Sabbath so that the law of Moses may not be broken, why are you angry with me for healing a man’s whole body on the Sabbath? 24 Stop judging by mere appearances, but instead judge correctly.”

Jesus is talking to the Pharisees and He is saying that if it is okay to circumcise a boy on the Sabbath then it is okay to heal a whole man’s body on the Sabbath. Jesus said that they should stop judging by mere appearances  and to judge correctly instead, Jesus knew that the Pharisees wanted to kill Him because He had done a miracle on the Sabbath.

Jesus didn’t only heal a man but He has made all of us clean and pure and healed if we accept Him. But what of? Our sins! We were sinners in need of a savior, we had all of our sins and God’s wrath on us. But Jesus came down from heaven to die for our sins, He took our sins on Him along with God’s wrath and He died for us on a cross! We were all infested with the sickness of sin but Jesus came and healed us, all we have to do is accept Him as our savior and repent of all the sins that we have done.

Jesus died for our sins, we should accept Him as our savior and repent of our sins so that we can have eternal life. We should believe in Jesus and become children of God, we should trust in Jesus so that we can be pure in the eyes of God. Jesus came down from heaven and died for our sins, we should trust in Jesus and be healed from our sins. Jesus gave us His righteousness in exchange for our sins on the cross, He gave us His perfection so that we could live. We should believe in Jesus and live. If we believe in Jesus and repent of our sins then we will live, we will have eternal life and we will be children of God.

12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.” (NIV John 1:12)

If we trust in Jesus, if we receive Him as our savior and repent of our sins then we will be given the right to become children of God.

We should trust in Jesus. We should also help others to trust in Jesus, if we can help others to trust in Jesus then they will live. We should believe in Jesus and we should help others to trust in Jesus, we should give them the Gospel so that they can repent of their sins and believe in Jesus as their savior. We should give them the Gospel and share with them the good news that Jesus died for our sins so that they can live, so that they can be saved from their sins.

Thank You Jesus for coming down from heaven to die for our sins. Thank You Jesus for loving us enough to be our atoning sacrifice. Thank You Jesus for perfectly atoning for our sins on the cross. Thank You Jesus for rising again on the third day and then ascending into heaven to prepare a place for us and to mediate on our behalf. Thank You Jesus for letting us believe in You. Thank You Jesus for giving us Your righteousness and taking our sins and God’s wrath away from us. Thank You Jesus for all that You have done for us.

Are you trusting in Jesus?

Grace and truth, Charity Cleveland.
