I am a reformed Pharisee. At least I hope that I am. I used to be judgmental. Well I probably still am to some extent. But I have been blown away by the Grace of God! It has been all in my face recently. I'm reading David Nassar's Devotional called A Call to Grace and Max Lucado's book Come Thirsty and I am so grateful that God shows me grace. It is easy to look at other people's sins and think rank them. But Paul says in Romans 3:23 that we have all sinned. In God's eyes every sin is the same- it separates us from Him. What drives me crazy is people who can't look @ other people the way Jesus did. Jesus didn't see sick people, He saw healthy people that needed healing. He didn't see prostitutes, He saw future Godly women. He doesn't see a flawed young minister, He sees a leader who needs some pruning. I'm grateful for God's Grace. Without it I would be in trouble. My prayer is that I will show Grace to others.
