Judge not, that ye be not judged. (Go ahead, live with your head in the sand) For with what judgment ye judge, YE SHALL BE JUDGED: and with what measure ye mete, IT SHALL BE MEASURED TO YOU AGAIN. Matthew 7:1-2. There is a government safety organization called OSHA. The name stands for Occupational Safety and Health Administration. They judge job site safety and will fine you if you are not in compliance. BUT IF, you call them and INVITE them to come to your job site, they will come, look things over, and give you a list of things that must be corrected, and give you a time span for you to correct your lack of safety, WITH NO FINE, during that free time span. After that allotted time runs out, THEN you will face fines for not changing your ways. In a Christian's Life, RUN TO CHRIST, confess your faults to Him, and ask Him to search your Heart for faults even unknown to you, that you and He may make the necessary changes needed to cast off the Things of the world, and take on the Things of Christ. Basically, ASK THE LORD TO JUDGE YOU NOW, that you may freely change your ways in this time of Grace and Mercy. Ask the Holy Spirit to change you now, that you will have no regrets on THE Day of Judgment, when it's too late to change anything. As the Lord reveals your "faults" to you, He will also show you The Way into Holiness, Righteousness, and Purity that were once blocked by the sins and errors of your life. To "Be Saved" is just the start, and that's good. But to be Judged of the Lord and cast off the ways of man, and Grow into The Ways of Christ, now THAT'S Life, and Life More Abundantly. Simply ask Christ to Judge you, and He most Graciously will. What a Joy to be Cleansed of worldly ways in a Judgment covered in Mercy and Grace. Let today be your "Day of Judgment" with Joy, rather than suffer Great Loss on THE Day of Judgment before the Lord on His Great White Throne. For some, for most, that will be a day of Great Terror, and they will NOT, Be Blessed.
