Devotion: Judge no one based on physical appearance

0

John 8:15 “You people judge by outward appearances; I do not judge anyone. ”

They may look at you the way you look outside and make wrong conclusions. They may judge based on colour, nationality or background. But we are more than how we look outside. We are heavenly citizens.Philippians 3 : 20 “But our citizenship is in heaven.”

We may look undesirable outside but We carry a great treasure in this earthen bodies. 2 Corinthians 4 :7. “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.”

They may focus on how you are in the flesh and make predictions about your life. But when you are born again, you are spiritual and just as wind, noone can predict your destiny. Only the Word of God describes our destiny. John 3 : 6-8 “That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”

We are a blessed race carrying in us a treasure of all Blessings in Spiritual realm. Eph 1:3 “Blessed is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms in Christ.”.

Physically, we may look like any other  person but spiritually we are blessed with all blessings. Therefore be awere of  your spiritual status to effect changes in your physical situation.

We can’t be judged based on seen features like skin color, stature etc because they are just temporal features and nobody should focus on them. Instead we focus on our spiritual status which is unseen but has effects in our physical world.  2 Cor 4:18 “because we are not looking at what can be seen but at what cannot be seen. For what can be seen is temporary, but what cannot be seen is eternal.”

Confession
