Proverbs 6:16-19 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

Proverbs 6:16-19

There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community. 

 

Thank You, Jesus!!!!! As I was reading this, God revealed to me that these were all traits of Judas and the men who betrayed and condemned Jesus to die! No wonder the Lord hates these traits so much! The men who condemned His Son displayed these traits better than anyone! Before I came to know the Lord, I would fit into each category at different times in my life, and I wonder if God viewed me the same way He did the men who tortured and murdered His Son!!

 


Thankfully, Jesus died and rose again for Judas just as much as for John or Peter!! We can be forgiven and made new because Jesus loves us so much, He was willing to take the weight of the world on His shoulders and break every chain that hindered us!!!! I don’t believe Jesus went to the cross to judge us but to save us with His love!

 

God always had a right to judge us, but it wasn’t until the cross that we had a chance to stand up under that judgement!! Only by the blood of Jesus!! I challenge you in a world full of Judases to be a Jesus!!!

 

I love you all, God bless, and Glory to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit!!!!!!
