Luke 6:37-42 The Immensely Important Role of Christians (Luke 6:37-42)Simon Twist, June 4, 2017
Part of the Luke - The Things Fulfilled Among Us series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
"Do not judge or you will be judged." That's what Jesus said. So are Christians to keep our mouths shut and mind our own business in this world? Jesus teaches us an important difference between writing people off and guiding people to safety.

37 “Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven; 38 give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”
39 He also told them a parable: “Can a blind man lead a blind man? Will they not both fall into a pit? 40 A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone when he is fully trained will be like his teacher. 41 Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 42 How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take out the speck that is in your eye,’ when you yourself do not see the log that is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take out the speck that is in your brother's eye. (ESV)
