There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy; who art thou that judgest another. – James 4:12
We serve a God of order; whose orderliness is established in heaven and seeks to establish it here on the earth as well. The authority to judge, correct or expose belongs to God, and to whomsoever he decides to give it, like Jesus, who was bestowed with the authority from God to judge, correct, and expose (John 5:22).
Hence even though we saw Jesus in the Scriptures, call out and challenge the Pharisees, it is interesting to note that he taught his disciples to honor them because of their office (Mathew 23:1-3). Moreover, we see that even David was not going to raise his hand against Saul, even when it was clearly noticed by all, that Saul had left God and was walking in his own ways. (1 Samuel 26:11).
So it is important to learn from today’s lesson, never to attack or slander any Pastor because you do not reserve the authority to do so; before his master, he either stands or falls (Romans 14:4). Halleluyah!
