Sermon, 3rd Sunday in Advent, 2023

In this life, we are necessarily most familiar with our own stories, and we are most familiar with our own struggles and pain.  It is therefore very easy to believe that our pain and difficulties are worse than that of other people.  In other words it is easy for us to be judgmental towards others.  This is an ancient problem for the Apostle Paul was often judged by those to whom he ministered.  And Jesus Himself, was seemingly judge by John the Baptist when John did not understand what was happening or what Jesus came to do.  So how do we avoid judging others?  Jesus is the only just judge.  Place your hope in Him, for He came to save not to condemn.  In Him we find freedom and joy.
