1 Corinthians 4:3-4 (NET)

So for me, it is a minor matter that I am judged by you or by any human court. In fact, I do not even judge myself. For I am not aware of anything against myself, but I am not acquitted because of this. The one who judges me is the Lord.

Even though Pastor Jude was innocent of all the accusations leveled against him by his enemies, he did not burden himself with the task of defending himself before his accusers. He simply explained the truth of the matter to the people that cared to listen, and he moved on.

He did this because he understood that expending too much energy and resources to get the approval of people who are willing to believe lies concerning him was futile, and this was not the kingdom way. A man who constantly seeks the approval of men will do this at the expense of the approval of the only one whose approval really counts-The Lord (see Gal 1:10).

This was the reason why Apostle Paul told the Corinthians in today’s Bible verse that it was a minor matter for him if he was judged by them or any human court. He made it clear to them that the one whose opinion mattered most was that of the Lord who is his judge.

He also made it clear that even though he may not be aware of any human accusation against him, it didn’t mean he was acquitted of all faults before the Lord who is his judge. Because it is possible to be celebrated by men and be despised by heaven.

Go into today remembering that your secret conduct as a believer is more important because we are all going to stand before the judgment seat of Christ and be judged for our works in the body (2 Cor 5:10, Col 3:23-25, 1Cor 3:14-15). This is the judgment that really matters.

—SD Abraham
