DO YOU EVEN KNOW ME BRO? People are very good at judging your actions by assuming your motives. They think they know you. Rarely do they have all the information. A one-sided conversation is never reliable. I remember a time years ago of being falsely accused and lied about how “condemning” I was. Do you even know me bro? I’m the person that when my first pastor, whom I love and honor dearly, fell into sin and everyone left him and condemned him; I refused. I wrote him an email telling him I loved him, was praying for him and believing God to restore him one day.
I won’t stand with the accuser of the brethren. I refuse to be in the crowd that screams, “crucify him!” And if you do not know that about me, then you do not know me. You know ABOUT me. I fear God. I love righteousness. I love His holy church. I love His Word. I am submitted to my God, my husband and my church. BUT people will only believe and see what they want to see about you.
Dear friend, do not lose heart because people condemn and falsely accuse you. Do they even KNOW you? Or just know about you? The truth will be brought to light. It may take a few years, but God ALWAYS reveals the truth. Let it go and do not let bitterness take root. Guard your heart and keep your mouth. “He who keeps his mouth, keeps his life”. Take a lesson from Paul,
“But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.” Acts 20:24 NKJV
