1 Corinthians 4:3
This is how one should regard us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. 2 Moreover, it is required of stewards that they be found faithful. 3 But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged by you or by any human court. In fact, I do not even judge myself. 4 For I am not aware of anything against myself, but I am not thereby acquitted. It is the Lord who judges me. 5 Therefore do not pronounce judgment before the time, before the Lord comes, who will bring to light the things now hidden in darkness and will disclose the purposes of the heart. Then each one will receive his commendation from God.
2 And when they heard that he was addressing them in the Hebrew dialect, they became even more quiet; and he said, 3 "I am a Jew, born in Tarsus of Cilicia, but brought up in this city, educated under Gamaliel, strictly according to the law of our fathers, being zealous for God just as you all are today."
"Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him."
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God
What shall we do with the balance of Holiness and mankind?
Yet God, with undeserved kindness, declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins.
We must rest upon God's Grace. And let Him fill us with Gladness. Asking His Living Water to renew us.
Christians want to behave as Jesus did. Jesus did have trouble. Peter vastly made an impact when Peter tried to behave as Jesus.
“It is enough for the disciple that he become like his teacher, and the slave like his master. If they have called the head of the house "Beelzebul, how much more will they malign the members of his household!"
We live our lives making decisions. How will we have comfort in our salvation and have grace? Reading the Word.
John 3 tells us
~ Your soul is getting along well when you have faithfulness to the truth.
~ Walk (live) in Truth.
~ Pray for your Children to Live in Truth. When You believe the Promises of God, you will obtain them.
~ You are doing faithfulness for brothers and sisters, even strangers.
~ Love people from your Church.
~ Show hospitality to God's people.
~ Imitate what is good, in sincerity. Anyone who does what is good is from God.
Jesus explained this Truth when He said we are the part of the Vine. God is the Vine dresser. God feeds us. HE loves us best!!!

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.

And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, 10 so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God.

Amen.
