Learning to Judge Righteously

13 Jun

The inward workmanship of the Lord

Judgement is upon the Lords house. (1 Peter 4:17)  This judgement is for the purpose of cleansing, clearing the temple of the merchants, thieves, and the religious mindset that we all have a proclivity towards. (John 2:18, & Matthew 21: 17 ~ 23)  In the truest sense, this judgement is towards our human or carnal nature. (Romans 8:7)

Judgement leads to proper vision, seeing our vast need for His nature to overtake our corrupt nature, this leads to repentance. (2 Corinthians 7:10)

Repentance leads to proper sorrow, and our asking, seeking and knocking upon the door of His heart. For His very nature to become our nature. (Matthew 7:7,8)

This condition is one the Lord responds to, mercy for our condition, and grace for our growth. Grace is very misunderstood. Grace is the presence of our Lord, and His workmanship inwardly. Grace is the purging of our nature, and the indwelling of His very life. (Malachi 3:2,3)

Grace leads us into a deeper walk, where we once again find His judgement, and the cycle starts over again, this time with more wisdom, trust, responsiveness, and joy.

Paul expressed the purpose of grace:

“But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me did not prove vain; but I labored even more than all of them, yet not I, but the grace of God with me.”
1 Corinthians 15:10
