Whoever Turns A Sinner

Remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of their way will save them from death and cover over a multitude of sins. ~ James 5:20

This has always been an interesting scripture to me. I firmly believe that we need to always be encouraging to our brothers and sisters in Christ and point them to the Word. In today’s society, people through around #dontjudgeme like it’s scriptural. When in reality, it isn’t. The Word says that we’ll be judged as we judge. We can’t judge someone’s heart.

If we weren’t supposed to judge people, then Paul sure made all sorts of sins calling out the churches that he wrote to. If we weren’t supposed to point out sin, we wouldn’t have needed to know about the fruits of the spirit to identify those who are in Christ.

It’s our responsibility, as believers, to point people to Christ no matter the condition of their heart. We need to be encouraging everyone around us to draw closer to Jesus with our entire being.

Help a sinner turn away from their sins. Share the gospel!
