You've Got a Friend! 9/20/17




"Don't judge someone just because they sin differently than you do."

Matthew 7:3-5 (KJV)
3  And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?  

4  Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?  

5  Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

I AWOKE, (PRAISE THE LORD FOR AWAKENING AGAIN!), last Tuesday to the WISE words posted above-they bear repeating:

"Don't judge someone just because they sin differently than you do."

My dear Canadian friend and fellow preacher had sent the above truth in his daily posts.

I AWOKE (see above) this morning still dwelling on this theme.

The Beatles, MANY years ago, coined a phrase-"ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE!"

1 Peter 4:8 (KJV)
8  And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.

" CHARITY (love) SHALL COVER A MULTITUDE OF SINS!"

Solomon wrote:

Proverbs 17:9 (KJV)
9  He that covereth a transgression seeketh love; but he that repeateth a matter separateth very friends.

How true is the ANCIENT Story concerning the real life Noah:

Genesis 9:18-23 (KJV)
18  And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan.  

19  These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth overspread.  

20  And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard:  

21  And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent.  

22  And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.  

23  And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness.

WE, as CHRISTIANS, are CALLED/SUPPOSED TO BE different from the world!!!

2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV)
17  Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.  

God HAS called you and I to "COVER" others sins and MANY transgressions.....

Well KNOWING our own "SINS AND MANY TRANSGRESSIONS!!!"

Romans 3:10 (KJV)
10  As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

As I was "puttin' this post to bed," God SPOKE to me, as He often does, through song!

The tune and lyrics of another ancient old hymn popped in my spirit:

There's not a friend like the lowly Jesus,
no, not one, no, not one.
None else could heal all our soul's diseases,
No, not one, no, not one.

Chorus 1:
Jesus knows all about our struggles,
He will guide til the day is done;
Oh, there's not a friend like the lowly Jesus,
no, not one, no, not one.

Verse 2:
No friend like Him is so high and holy,
no, not one, no, not one.
And yet no friend is so meek and lowly,
no, not one, no, not one. 

" JESUS KNOWS ALL ABOUT OUR STRUGGLES!!!"

Proverbs 17:17 (KJV)
17  A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.

YOU'VE GOT A FRIEND!
