September 17 – Leave Him To Me
In My Kingdom judgment is not man’s role. There is one Judge, and even He reserves His judgment until the last chapter of man’s life is written, until all the evidence is secured, so anxious is He to discover some extenuating circumstances, or to wait until by man’s turning to Him and throwing himself upon His mercy, the position is altered, and the judge becomes the prisoner in the dock.
Then God the Father, knowing His Beloved Son accepts responsibility for the deed (has in fact already received the punishment Himself), is bound to pardon the human sinner.
You then in judging (poor, weak, foolish, contemptuous arrogance), are judging not the sinner but Me.
