Acts 4:27-30

 27 Indeed Herod and Pontius Pilate met together with the Gentiles and the people of Israel in this city to conspire against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed. 28 They did what your power and will had decided beforehand should happen. 29 Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. 30 Stretch out your hand to heal and perform signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”

 

After Peter and John were released they prayed and this was part of their prayer.  Have your been wronged by someone and rather than praying for harm/justice…  you pray for God’s will to be done here on Earth?  If we are commanded not to judge, why do all of us do it so freely?  Why do we “think” we know what lives in someone’s heart? 

Once you see what God’s power can do…  your thought process will change.  It won’t be so much about the person who cut us off, the person who swore in front of our kids, the kid that is mean to your kids or the person who gossips about us thinking we are phony…  It’s about God’s will being done here on Earth.  We are called to KNOW there is sin and not get wrapped up in it, but use it to show people what God’s love can do….  How following God’s word and Jesus’ example can bring a life so meaningful that peace surrounds you even in the dark times.

So next time you see sin, remember we should turn the other cheek and know that we are not the sin police!
