Falsely Accused for Doing Right
Have you ever been falsely accused for doing the right thing? Has anyone every taken advantage of your kindness? Has someone been angry with you because you have spoken the truth in love? Have you felt like you were being persecuted for not being conformed to this world?
It should be clear that Jesus completely understands what you are going through. He knows a little bit about false accusations. Actually the whole time He was on earth as man He was repeatedly being falsely accused.
Truth is, each of us are broken, fallen human beings, and most likely are guilty of at least a few of the things we have been accused of by others. It is a good thing that Jesus, the Righteous One, who was not guilty of any accusation, is there to forgive us of our wrong doing if we confess it to Him.
1 John 1:9(ESV)
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Here is some Good News:
For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet, God, in His grace, freely makes us right in His sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when He freed us from the penalty of our sins.
Romans 3:23-24 NLT
Are you not guilty of what you have been accused of? Go to the God of Heaven who was falsely accused, mocked, whipped, beaten, hung on a cross, buried AND Rose From the Grave!!! In these times we need to give God praise, yes praise, and go to Him in prayer.
Psalm 109:1-4 (ESV)
1 Be not silent, O God of my praise!
2 For wicked and deceitful mouths are opened against me, speaking against me with lying tongues.
3 They encircle me with words of hate, and attack me without cause.
4 In return for my love they accuse me, but I give myself to prayer.
Always remember that Jesus is at the right hand of the Father interceding for you. Romans 8:24
