It shouldn’t be ‘how far away can we get’? But how close to Jesus can we get?
Don’t judge me! Outside the church, we shouldn’t be judging . . . inside the church, we need to judge. Mostly ourselves, but also others if we have the love to help them. Judging without condemnation.
A big picture of this is the Jewish tradition of searching the house for leaven, and getting rid of it! The leaven represents sin.
God says He can change our lives, by changing the way we think!
