There is a famous saying, “Monday morning quarterback” that refers to those that spend Monday criticizing their favorite football team and player(s). We often say, “they should have done_______” or “I can’t believe that the QB didn’t see the receiver open in the end zone”. We say these things because we have the luxury of seeing replays in slow motion on TV. Well, the same could be said about the Bible. During Easter, we often talk about the Jewish leaders that crucified Jesus on the cross. How could they do that? Why would they do that? Didn’t they know who He was? As we move forward from Easter, if you were there, would you have put Jesus on the cross?
In Romans 14:10-13 we read, “10 But why do you judge your brother? Or why do you show contempt for your brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. 11 For it is written: “As I live, says the Lord, Every knee shall bow to Me, And every tongue shall confess to God.” 12 So then each of us shall give account of himself to God. 13 Therefore let us not judge one another anymore, but rather resolve this, not to put a stumbling block or a cause to fall in our brother’s way.”
Every time we judge others, we put Jesus back on the cross. Every time we cause others to stumble and fall, we put Jesus back on the cross. No, we may have not been there that Good Friday when Jesus was crucified, but when we judge others and cause others to fall, we put Him back on the cross. Live your life to glorify and honor the Lord, not crucify Him.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
