TEXT:

Hebrews 12: 1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, LET US LAY ASIDE EVERY WEIGHT AND SIN WHICH DOTH SO EASILY BESET US, AND LET SO RUN WITH PATIENCE THE RACE THAT IS SET BEFORE US...

Mat. 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

Luke 19:22 God says: Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee...

John 7:24 Judge not according to appearance....

Let us ponder Laying aside weight to attain victory.

This is the 7th in series of Weight to remove, text, Heb. 12:1

I. Remove the weight: Introduction

II. REMOVE THE WEIGHT OF SIN.

III. Remove the weight of no evaluation.

IV. Remove the weight: Blame Game.

V. Remove the weight of GREED.

VI. Remove the weight of JEALOUSY

VII. Remove the weight of Judgmentalism

I am wearing a backpack with 40 pounds of rock,

the first rock was labeled SIN. This rock is labeled Jealousy.

I have a friend remove the one rock from my backpack,

I have painted the word Jealousy on the rock.

I have SIN the biggest rock, it is a little larger than three fist,

the rest are little bigger than soft ball size.

I note my load is getting lighter as I remove the weights.

Today the 4th rock is removed.

I wear the back pack for the whole service, the load sure gets heavy.

EACH LESSON MY LOAD IS GETTING LIGHTER

AS I GIVE UP MY THIINKS THAT WEIGH ME DOWN.

WHAT COLOR ROBE DOES JESUS GIVE BELIEVERS?

White!

What color robe do judges wear?

Black

There might be a lesson here?

VI. REMOVE THE SPIRIT OF JUDGEMENTIALISM.

Who made you judge and jury?

A. LET’S SEE WHAT SOME WISE MEN SAY ABOUT JUDGING OTHERS?

Mat. 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

Luke 19:22 God says: Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee...

John 7:24 Judge not according to appearance....

You cannot judge only knowing one side, you need to see the whole. Euripides

You can’t fairly judge your own case. Publillius Syrus

Forbear to judge, for we are all sinners. Shakespeare

I said to my son, you are young, life has many lessons to learn.

Years will come and go, by time you will change and even reverse many of your present opinions.

So refrain from setting yourself up as a judge. Plato

You cannot judge a book by it’s cover.

B. HOW CAN YOU FOCUS ON ANOTHER’S SMALL THINGS?

Mat. 7:3 You see the splinter in your brothers eye, and you have a 2x4 in your eye?

5. Thou hypocrite, first cast your 2x4 out of your eye, then you can see their splinter better.

C. THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WHITEWASHED AND WASHED WHITE.

Jesus warned in Mat. 23: 25 of the danger of washing the outside of the cups and leaving dirt inside.

God can see the inner man.

God knows the MOTIVE.

To whitewash is to cover the dirt, to wash white is to remove the dirt.

You can but all the perfume you want on the dirty person, the smell will return.
