A.W. Tozer once said that all God would have to do to condemn us is to hang a tape recorder around our neck. Then, at the judgment He could play back for us all of the times that we condemned others. So, all of the times that we said, “Well, he shouldn’t do that.” or “She shouldn’t be doing that,” would be recorded. All God would have to do is play those back for us to prove that none of us have even lived up to our own standard for other people, and if we can’t live up to our own standard, well, there is no way that we can live up to God’s standard. In the end we are all in need of grace – grace that God so freely gives to all who have faith in Jesus. Jesus came to pay the price of sin for sinners and to give a righteous standing before the almighty God to all who have faith in Him.
