Saw Dust and Splinters

Series: Seek & Save

Frank Foreman

This week, Frank continues our series traveling through the book of Luke. This week, we stay in Luke 6 with part of Luke's abbreviated version of the Sermon on the Mount. In this message, we will be reminded of the importance we should place on getting our own spiritual "ducks in a row," so to speak, before we choose to help others through their spiritual struggles. We need clear vision ourselves if we want to help others to see more clearly.

Episode Notes

Luke 6:37-42

"Judge"  Greek: diakrino'

How we judge others says far more about us than how we are judged by others.

1.  Remove the log that obstructs your view of God ... Verse 37

John 5:22-24, The Father judges no one, but has given all judgment to the Son, that all may honor the Son, just as they honor the Father. Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him. Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears My word and believes Him who sent Me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.

2.  Remove the log that obstructs your view of others ... Verse 38

Romans 2:1-3, Therefore you have no excuse, O man, every one of you who judges. For in passing judgment on another you condemn yourself, because you, the judge, practice the very same things. We know that the judgment of God rightly falls on those who practice such things. Do you suppose, O man—you who judge those who practice such things and yet do them yourself—that you will escape the judgment of God?

3.  Remove the log that obstructs your view of yourself ... Verses 41-42

Romans 3:23-25, …for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by His grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by His blood, to be received by faith.
